Oklahoma Highway Patrol (OHP) troopers worked Friday to reconstruct the scene of a fatality near I-35 southbound and Seward Road.

They took photos and measurements on the off-ramp, where investigators said a woman died the night before. OHP initially responded to the area around 10:45 p.m. Thursday.

According to the Medical Examiner, the victim had head injuries consistent with jumping or being pushed from a moving vehicle.

OHP Lieutenant Kera Philippi said that vehicle did not stick around.

“From what we can tell at the scene,” Lt. Philippi said, "it looks like a vehicle that would’ve been involved is possibly some kind of a Chevy SUV."

The reported victim is 33-year-old Vanya J. Evans.

Lt. Philippi said her family is in Rhode Island. But according to the report, investigators don't know where she was living or what led to this.

Anyone with information can contact OHP dispatch at 405-425-2323 or dial *55 from a cell phone.
