OSBI investigates overdose death of 12-year-old Claremore girl

CLAREMORE, OK (KSWO)- The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is currently looking into the death of a 12-year-old girl at the request of the Chelsea Police Department.

Authorities believe the girl ingested a large quantity of medication not prescribed to her on Saturday, April 8th. According to authorities, her grandmother noticed that the girl took the medication but did not seek medical attention for the child.  

The girl was transported to an area hospital after becoming unresponsive. She was pronounced dead a short time later.

OSBI special agents arrested the girl's grandmother, Velva Diane Patteson, 59, on one count of child neglect.
