LONDON, Ky. (WTVQ) – A woman was found dead in the kitchen of a home Wednesday afternoon off little Pittsburg Road, two miles north of London, according to the Laurel County Sheriff’s Office. Investigators say 55-year old Tawnya McGhee of London was found by a deputy jailer and McGhee’s sister when they went to check on her shortly after 5:00 p.m. An immediate cause of death wasn’t determined, according to investigators.

An autopsy was scheduled for Thursday morning at the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Frankfort. Investigators hope the autopsy will help determine how and why McGhee died. Currently, the case is being classified as a ‘death investigation,’ according to the Laurel County Sheriff’s Office.
