Police Want More Details On Woman's Death

Cookeville police detectives are trying to found out more information about the death of a woman in a local motel room. Authorities say they believe the death of 25-year-old Kristina Dianna Hernandez may have been drug-related, but they would like some additional details about the hours leading up to her death last Friday. According to a report by Officer Lester Langford, Hernandez had been staying with some friends in a room at the Alpine Lodge and had reportedly gone out with an unidentified individual last Thursday night -- returning to the motel "messed up really bad." She immediately went to bed and was found dead in the room the next morning.
