State officials have released the name of the woman found dead inside a Tahlequah home over the weekend.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation stated that Tiffany Rene Maher was identified as the woman found dead in Tahlequah last Friday. Her body was found by Northeaster State University Officers who were requested to perform a welfare check.

According to a release from the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, Maher was discovered by an officer at her residence near the 100 block of Kupsick Street around 6 p.m. after the victim's friend asked for officers to check on her.

Maher is listed as an assistant chemistry professor at NSU in Tahlequah, according to the school's website.

Investigators determined that Maher's vehicle, a red 2011 Ford Fiesta, was missing from the scene of the crime. On Monday a man recognized her vehicle at Stone Haven Villas apartment complex near 81st Street and notified Tulsa Police.

Maher's vehicle was taken from the south Tulsa apartments and is now being analyzed for fingerprints that may lead investigators to a suspect. Officials photographed the area and canvassed the complex for witness information.

The state medical examiner has not yet determined how Maher died.
