FAIRMONT, Okla. — Garfield County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death of a Tulsa woman after her body was found last week in the Fairmont area.

Deputies were called out at 2:45 p.m. Thursday to an area about one mile north and one mile west of Fairmont in reference to a person lying in a ditch along a county road.

Upon arrival, deputies found 33-year-old Radiance Lewis deceased, and her vehicle, a silver Chevrolet Cruze, was located about one mile northeast from where she was discovered.

Next of kin have been notified, according to GCSO, and the cause of Lewis’ death still is undetermined and under investigation by deputies, Oklahoma Office of the Chief Medical Examiner and Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.

Sheriff Cory Rink said there were no apparent injuries on Lewis when she was found and estimated she had been there for about five hours before deputies arrived on scene.

Rink said investigators weren’t sure yet why Lewis had been in the area at the time of her death.

Lewis was seen on video surveillance walking around in the immediate area, and Rink asked any residents in the area who have video surveillance systems to review their footage and send it to the GCSO.

“We’re still gathering information to figure out what happened,” Rink said.

Anyone with information regarding the case can call GCSO at (580) 237-0244 or the Garfield County Crime Stoppers hotline at (580) 233-6233.
