The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is looking into the death of a woman found at Lake Thunderbird. 

OSBI agents opened a suspicious death investigation following the grisly discovery. 

“A woman’s body was found in the park yesterday evening,” said OSBI spokeswoman Brook Arbeitman.

Park goers sounded the alarm around 6:00 p.m. Monday.

“She was found just off the trail, in the trail line, and she was found by cyclists who notified park rangers,” said Arbeitman.

According to OSBI the woman's body was found off Breakwater Drive, near the eastside of the parking lot. There, the newly constructed bike trails and parking lot are surrounded by a wooded area that spans to the lake's shoreline.

“It hasn’t even been 24 hours; they've been pretty much working nonstop at this point in time,” said Arbeitman.

Investigators are turning to technology in an effort to identify the woman’s remains.   

“We have basically a mobile ID, like a fingerprint scanner. If her fingerprints were taken for any reason, and she’s in the FBI system, we’ll be able to identify her that way,” said Arbeitman. 

Investigators are working to determine how the woman ended up dead near a walking trail. 

“We have no identity or cause or manner of death at this point,” said Arbeitman. 

Investigators are asking anyone who may have been at the park on Monday to contact them.

“If anyone was at Lake Thunderbird and saw anything unusual or out of place or character, give us a call or let us know,” said Arbeitman.

According to OSBI, the woman’s remains are at the Medical Examiner’s Office. They will determine how the woman died.
