On Tuesday, Coroner Adam Downs identified the woman as Bryttanie Russell, 25. Downs said an investigation into Russell’s death was continuing Tuesday, and that her body had been sent to a state forensics lab in Huntsville for an autopsy.
According to Cleburne County Sheriff’s Office investigator Joseph Freeman, the incident happened around 6 p.m. Monday.
