GUTHRIE, Okla. (AP) -- An Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper has been found dead in his home in Guthrie.
The OHP said Tuesday that the body of 35-year-old Brad Babb was found Monday by a family member. Trooper Betsy Randolph says Babb's body was sent to the state medical examiner's office to determine the cause of death -- but said foul play is not suspected and referred other questions to Guthrie police.
Police Lt. Mark Bruning said the death is not being investigated as a homicide. He declined further comment.
The OHP says Babb joined the Highway Patrol after graduating from the OHP Academy in 2000.
