Woman's body sent for autopsy

The body of a pregnant 24-year-old Conway woman was sent to the state crime lab for analysis after the woman was discovered dead in her apartment on Friday.

According to the report, police responded to a call at Chapel Ridge Apartments on Second Street around 1:30 p.m. after the woman was found unresponsive in her home.

MEMS personnel were unable to revive the woman, who was reportedly 38 weeks pregnant and had been receiving routine prenatal care.

Faulkner County Coroner Pat Moore said the woman had been to the doctor on Thursday and that “pregnancy-wise” everything seemed to be OK.

“There was nothing suspicious at the scene,” Moore said. “We were just unable to identify an exact cause of death, so the body was sent for an autopsy.”

Moore said on Monday afternoon he was awaiting autopsy results.
