— Authorities on Friday released a recording of a 911 call from a man who saw two children playing in the street, which led police to find their mother's body this week.

Jessica Lynn Brown, 23, was found by police Wednesday morning. Police Chief Brandon Clabes said investigators are still looking for her killer.

A man called police and reported seeing Brown's son and daughter, ages 2 and 3, walking in the street near her home at 933 Locust Lane.

“I don't know if anybody is home or not, but I was kind of concerned because they are running back and forth across the street,” the caller said.

The caller told a dispatcher the children were a few houses down from where they lived with their mother.

“She's wearing pink pajamas, and the boy is in blue pajamas,” the caller said.

When police arrived, the children told them “mommy is asleep” inside the house. Officers found Brown dead with “obvious signs of trauma” to her body, Clabes said.

Family members said Brown might have been pregnant at the time she was killed. Clabes said the state medical examiner will determine whether she was pregnant and her cause of death.

Police are making progress and investigating several leads, Clabes said.

Brown worked at Loomis, an armored car company in Oklahoma City, and was a member of the Oklahoma National Guard for 5½ years before her death.

Police were sent to the home several times in the last year on complaints related to a pending divorce between Jessica Brown and her husband, Fabion Brown.
