OSBI Assist Blaine County Officials in Investigation of Woman's Death

An OSBI Crime Scene Agent processed a death scene in Blaine County Tuesday evening. A woman was found dead outside her home approximately one mile west and one mile north of Watonga. It appears Sherry Ann Compton (d.o.b. 7-23-1942) had been dead several days due to the rate of decomposition. A friend found her body Tuesday afternoon and called the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office. The sheriff’s office requested OSBI assistance with the crime scene only. The medical examiner’s office will determine Compton’s cause and manner of death. Currently, her death is considered suspicious.

Questions concerning this investigation should be directed to the Blaine County Sheriff's Office.
