TULSA, Okla. –
Cassidy Ritchie‘s body was found after police served a search warrant for her abandoned car, which was found near Highway 412 on Friday. Her damaged and abandoned car was found between Catoosa and Inola on Friday.
According to the Tulsa Police Department, her body was found underneath clothing in the back of the SUV.
Police are currently investigating Richie’s death as a homicide.
The Ritchie family released the following statement:
Our mother has been found. Unfortunately, she is no longer with us. We cannot say anything more as it is an ongoing investigation. Thank you to everyone who took the time out of their day yesterday to help search for her. Thank you to all the friends, family, and strangers who came out, and thank you to everyone who has kept us in your thoughts and prayers. Please give my family and I privacy as we deal with the grieving process.
Records show Ritchie got married to Chris Morland about a month ago.
Police say they questioned Morland and were concerned about some of his answers.
He was booked into the Tulsa County Jail for a warrant for a fugitive from justice from Medina County, Texas.
Police say the damage on her car suggests it might have gone off the road.
