CHOCTAW, Okla. -- Police are searching for a suspect who allegedly attacked a 37-year-old woman and set her ablaze early Tuesday.

Jessica "Baby Girl" Brackett was found walking along a road between Choctaw and Harrah, said Choctaw Police Chief Billy Carter. She remained hospitalized in Oklahoma City where her condition was not released.

Carter did not release the suspect's name, but said the person is not a boyfriend or husband of the victim.

Brackett told police a black man set her on fire, said Harrah Police Maj. Gary Morgan. It appeared an accelerant, such as hairspray, was used to set the woman on fire, police said.
