The Maries County Sheriff’s Deputies are investigation what they call a “suspicious death” of a 24 year old woman. Sheriff Chris Heitman says 24 year old Nichole Bailey was transported by flight for life to University Hospital in Columbia after an elderly woman found Bailey outside near Vichy. Heitman said Bailey had probably been outside eight or nine hours before she was found, and was suffering from severe hypothermia when she was found. She died later at the hospital. The cause of death has yet to be determined.
