Woman found dead at wreck

Thursday, October 20, 2005

The body of a Cave City woman was found inside her wrecked car Oct. 16 on Lafferty Road in Izard County.

According to the Izard County Sheriff's Department, 51-year-old Jewelling Winningham was found inside her Chevrolet Cavalier, which had struck a tree.

Izard County Coroner Eddie Howard pronounced Winningham dead at the scene.

Deputy Terry Williams of the Izard County Sheriff's Department said the collision with the tree likely caused Winningham's death, but the investigation is continuing.

Winningham may have wrecked her car the previous day, Williams said. He said heavy underbrush obstructed the view of the wreck site.

The cause of the wreck was not known as of press time Oct. 17.

Izard County Sheriff Tate Lawrence was out of town on business and deputies at the Izard County Sheriff's Office refused to release any more information about the investigation.
