Deadly Fire Ruled Suspicious

5-5-05 – Investigators are looking for answers after a deadly fire in Ardmore. Flames broke out early Thursday morning at a small apartment in the 200 block of 11th Street Northwest.

Thirty four year old Sunday Withrow was found dead inside shortly after 1:00 a.m. when a man, walking his dog smelled smoke coming from her home.

Firefighters say the burn patterns indicate that the blaze may have been started intentionally. The fire started in a closet, but there was no electrical or heat source.

Authorities will send evidence to the OSBI for analysis and the victim’s body will be sent to the Medical Examiner.
