OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma City police are investigating a mysterious death.

On Friday, a woman's body was found under the I-235 bridge leading into downtown.

The victim's body was found in the middle of the road and authorities are investigating the case as a hit-and-run.

Unfortunately, exactly what happened to that woman remains a mystery

"We're not sure if this was an auto pedestrian accident or if it was a homicide," said Lt. Alan Burgett, with the Oklahoma City Police Department. "The doctors were unable to determine if she was hit by a car or some kind of weapon or not."

The victim, Kimberly Williams, died from a massive head injury, but the cause of the trauma still isn't clear.

"It's possible Williams was struck by a vehicle. Our officers are trying to determine what happened to her," said Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow, with the Oklahoma City Police Department.

Police say unlike most deadly hit -and-run accidents, there didn't appear to be debris from a damaged car on scene.

"There was no evidence of a collision at the scene," said Wardlow.

Despite the heavy traffic along 23rd St., there were apparently no witnesses to the death.

So far, no arrests have been made.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at (405) 235-7300.
