OPOLIS — The deceased woman found Wednesday morning in Opolis has been identified as Brandi S. Moore, 35, of Pittsburg.
Crawford County Sheriff Danny Smith said the preliminary external examination of the body by the pathologist has indicated that the injuries sustained by Moore are consistent with being struck by a vehicle. A completed autopsy and official cause of death are pending.
“Right now we have investigators trying to, you know, kind of piece together everything that happened and a time frame,” Smith said.
The identity of the driver and vehicle has not been determined at this time, Smith said, and it is unclear whether the impact that apparently killed Moore was intentional or not. The time of death occurred between 8 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 21 and 6 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 22. It happened on Walnut Street between 2nd and 3rd Street east of the Opolis City Park.
“If anybody saw anything or heard anything, anything like that, we’re reaching out to the public for some information,” Smith said.
Anyone with information regarding this incident can contact the Crawford County Sheriff’s Office at 620-724-8274.
