Body found in Walmart bathroom 3 days after woman was seen

The Associated Press - June 28, 2017 8:53 am

SAND SPRINGS, Okla. (AP) – A woman’s body was found in a restroom at a northeast Oklahoma Walmart three days after she was seen on store video entering the room.
Police in the Tulsa suburb of Sand Springs say the body of 29-year-old Katherine Caraway of Muskogee was found Monday when the locked bathroom was opened.
Capt. Todd Enzbrenner says video shows Caraway entering the room about 6 p.m. Friday. He says store employees assumed because the door was locked that something in the bathroom needed to be fixed, so they placed an out-of-order sign on the door.
Enzbrenner says a maintenance worker opened the door shortly after 3 p.m. Monday.
Enzbrenner says the body was sent to the state medical examiner to determine the cause of death, but that it doesn’t appear suspicious.
