The death of a woman who apparently was injured several weeks before she died has been ruled a homicide.

Jackie Littrell, 56, died at a Claremore hospital July 11, Lt. Brandon Watkins wrote in a news release Wednesday.

The Tulsa Police Department’s Homicide Unit was notified July 20 about the medical examiner’s ruling, which was based on “internal trauma she received several weeks before” her death, he said.

An obituary for Littrell said she was born in Tulsa and lived in Mayes County. Her death is being investigated as the 47th homicide in Tulsa this year.

No warrants have been issued related to Littrell’s death, according to police, and no arrests have been made.

No further details were provided.
