Jun. 4—The Cleveland County Sheriff's Office is investigating a body found to the east of Norman Thursday evening.
The body was located near 192nd Avenue NE. and E. Rock Creek Road, CCSO spokesperson Mendi Brandon said Friday. As of 9:45 a.m. Friday, Brandon could not share any more information, she said.
The State Fire Marshal's office was able to confirm that law enforcement also found a burned vehicle at the site, and that an agent would be investigating the vehicle fire.
The body and burned vehicle were within a short distance of each other on the property, and the Cleveland County Police Department is investigating the connection between the two, Sheriff Chris Amason said.
"Right now we're still trying to figure out exactly what occurred," Amason said Friday. "My investigators are working the case and we'll hopefully have some preliminary information next week."
