Woman found dead on Arkansas interstate

The Arkansas State Police are investigating the death of a Little Rock woman who was found on Interstate 30 in the Little Rock area.

Troopers say 35-year-old Lakevia Jiles died about 2:30 a.m. Saturday in the westbound lanes of the highway near the Geyer Springs exit. Her body was taken to the State Crime Laboratory for an autopsy.

Troopers say evidence collected at the scene indicates a silver or beige-colored vehicle may have struck Jiles.

They are asking that anyone who was traveling on I-30 or on Geyer Springs Road and may have seen a woman approaching or walking along the interstate to contact them.
