Woman Found Dead In Creek

The body of a 46-year old Regina Fitzjurls was found Monday afternoon in a creek area near the Eastwood Drive Apartments in Booneville.

It is believed Fitzjurls died either Sunday night or early Monday morning. Police Chief Al Brown said Fitzjurls had been treated for dizziness at Booneville Community Hospital Sunday night and had apparently told family members she was going home to take medication.

What medications those may have been were undetermined late Monday, Brown said, because the police department was awaiting a search warrant to enter Fitzjurls’ apartment.

Brown also said there are no obvious signs of foul play but that the body was sent to the State Crime Lab in hopes a cause of death can be determined.
