A woman was found dead inside her home after deputies smelled a strong odor of propane coming from inside the residence, the McClain County sheriff said.

A McClain County deputy drove past the residence about 3 p.m. Wednesday and noticed a pickup with its doors wide open. He went to the pickup to investigate and found a woman’s purse and cellphone inside the pickup. The deputy also smelled a strong odor of propane coming from inside the nearby residence, McClain County Sheriff Don Hewett said.

Another deputy arrived and the two went inside the home. They found a 24-year-old woman dead inside her bedroom with all the home’s windows shut and the propane turned on, Hewett said.

Detectives and Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation agents are investigating the death but so far the death is considered “very suspicious” due to the physical evidence found inside the home, Hewett said.

Cause of death will be determined by the state medical examiner. The woman’s identity was not released Wednesday night.
