Police say a woman found dead Thursday in a burned-out car in Edmond took her own life.

Edmond police found her Chevrolet Tahoe near Danforth and Post roads about 5:15 p.m. Thursday. Inside, they found her body.

"Mrs. Macy died after setting a fire inside of her parked vehicle," police Master Sgt. Gary Knight stated in a news release. "The death has been ruled a suicide and the medical examiner has determined that Mrs. Macy died of smoke inhalation."

Arson and homicide investigators determined no one else could have started the fire.

Macy, a social worker, was reported missing Wednesday morning when she didn't show up for a 9 a.m. appointment at a clinic a few miles from her home. She lived in the 2800 block of Old Hickory Drive in Oklahoma City, police said.

Family members and a pastor from Life Church in Edmond were gathered this morning at the Macy home. The family, including her husband, Mark, was too distraught to speak.
