NORMAN — The body of a 17-year-old Norman student who was reported as a runaway Saturday was found Monday evening in the 500 block of 36th Avenue NW.

Police Capt. Tom Easley said a resident walking in the area discovered the body and called police shortly before 7 p.m. Monday.

A Norman police spokesman said officers are investigating but said suicide was the most likely cause of death. An official ruling will come from the medical examiner’s office.
