On Sunday morning, Ripley County Communications received a report of a female not answering her door due to an unknown problem. The complaint came from the landlord at a residence in Elrod.

Emergency services personnel were dispatched and, upon their arrival, were unable to gain immediate access to the apartment. Entry into the apartment was made after Corporal Rob Bradley arrived to assist.

Inside the apartment first responders located 37-year-old Hannah L. Walker, of Elrod, formerly of Cincinnati, deceased.

“While it is believed that drug use is a contributing factor, the cause of death is still unknown at this time. Results will be released pending return of coroner’s report,” said Ripley County Cpl. Rob Bradley.

Results could take up to several weeks.

If anyone has any information in this incident, contact the Ripley County Sheriffs Office at (812)689-5555.
