Item Leads to Oklahoma Medical Examiner's Office Evacuation
An evacuation of the Oklahoma State Medical Examiner's Office in Oklahoma City was lifted after a suspicious device found on a body was determined not to be a bomb or a threat.
Police Sgt. Gary Knight said the device found about 10:30 a.m. Friday appears to be a flare.
Knight said the body is that of a man killed in an auto crash Thursday. He said there are "a number of possibilities" how a flare would wind up with the body, but he didn't want to speculate on a specific scenario.
Medical examiner's spokeswoman Amy Elliott said about 40 people left the building when the evacuation was ordered.
