HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office is trying to piece together what happened after a woman was found lying injured along a roadway.

The sheriff’s office initially believed the woman may have been stabbed. We’re told new information is putting that into doubt and how she was injured is now unclear.

Sheriff Chuck Phillips says the incident in question is believed to have started at least at Normandy Apartments in Bridgeport.

They received the call around 10 pm. The victim was taken to Park Ridge Hospital in Jasper, Tennessee where she died.

The victim is now identified as 25 year old Samantha Frison of Bridgeport.

The sheriff’s office now says that preliminary autopsy indicated that she died by trauma due to being run over by a vehicle.

Officials are continuing to investigate this incident.

Sheriff Phillips says they do have a person of interest.
