Franklin County Sheriff Richard Lathim tells KNDU (http://is.gd/C1sg85 ) that they’re looking into whether the woman was already dead or unresponsive before she was struck by a BNSF Railway train Saturday morning.
Lathim says the train engineer told deputies he saw something on the tracks and honked his horn but got no response.
