A woman was found dead inside a home in Norman, and police are trying to figure out what happened.

Neighbors describe a wild scene in the final hours of the woman's life.

Police say 30-year-old Cassandra Thompson didn't show up for work Monday morning and coworkers could not get anyone to answer the door to her home. That's when police showed up and made the discovery.

A body was wheeled out of a home near Donna Dr. and Drake Dr., the result of what neighbors say had been escalating since the day before.

"They stopped right here and like really get into it, and he says, 'Take the truck back to my house, and I'm not getting on the truck.' He kept walking. He got to the curb right there and she hit him. Boom," witness Josh Tyler said.

The fighting that came from the home caught the attention of everyone around. The most recent altercation took place out in the street, when Thompson was driving a truck and following behind her boyfriend. Neighbors say she was irate that her boyfriend wouldn't get into the truck with her. So, she stomped on the gas and gunned it, running over him.

“She had it floored man. Put it in drive. I saw the look on her face and everything, as fast as she could. Ramped the curb like it was nothing," Tyler said.

Witnesses say the trees helped break the impact.

"I thought he was dead," Tyler said.

The man survived, but the couple ended up back at their home and continued their argument. Kenneth Kocher lives across the street and says he heard screaming well into the early morning hours, and then about 2:30 a.m. what sounded like gunshots.

"It scared the heck out of me," he said.

Police say Thompson's boyfriend is not considered a suspect at this time. Investigators are working to determine a cause of death.
