Original story: 

CLARKSVILLE, Ark. -- Authorities in Johnson County are trying to determine how a 75 year old woman died in her driveway Monday. 

According to Johnson County Sheriff Larry Jones, the victim's sister found her in their driveway outside the home they shared in a rural area near Hartman. Jones says the sister called 911 after discovering the victim covered in deep gashes on her arms and legs. 

Jones would not speculate about what may have killed the woman but says he did ask the family about any aggressive or stray dogs in the area. He also says he saw nothing suspicious to indicate the death would be a homicide. 

"She did carry a stick because there were a couple of dogs that would come up to the fence barking, but never acted vicious toward the family," Jones said, recounting what the victim's family told him. 

Officials aren't releasing names at this time but neighbors identified the victim as Sharon Lindemann. Neighbors also believed the death was due to a dog attack. 

Investigators hope to have a preliminary autopsy report back within the next week.
