Police beat

A Keystone woman died after she was apparently struck by a train sometime between midnight and 8:45 a.m. Monday, according to the Keith County attorney.

The body of Tiana Machell Yocam of Keystone was discovered near the railroad tracks at Paxton, County Attorney Randy Fair told the Keith County News.

An autopsy had been ordered and the State Patrol was investigating, Fair said, “and we hope that will assist us in determining what occurred.”
