HARTFORD, Ark. (AP) - The Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office has released the name of a 23-year-old woman found dead in Hartford.

Sheriff Bill Hollenbeck told reporters that the body found during the weekend is that of Leanora Rippy of Boles and that a preliminary autopsy report says she had been run over several times by a vehicle.

Rippy’s body was found after a passer-by found a 2-year-old boy covered in bruises and wandering around the area. The child is now in state custody.

Sheriff’s Lt. Philip Pevehouse says a man who had a previous relationship with Rippy has been arrested as a suspect in her death.
