Pittsburg County Sheriff's Office said the body found Tuesday near Longtown has been identified.

Sheriff Chris Morris said a seismographic crew found the body of Devina Smith, 29 in woods in the Piney Creek area.

Morris said Smith had not been reported missing and it wasn't out of the ordinary for her father to go two weeks without speaking to her.

"The fact she was 29-years-old makes this a suspicious death, but not necessarily foul play," Morris said. The Medical Examiner determined there was no gunshot wound, no stab sounds, no signs of strangulation and no blunt trauma, so the cause of death is undetermined."
