The probable cause for a Chickasha pastor has been ruled "undetermined" by the Oklahoma State Medical Examiner's Office.

In June 2016, Pastor Michael Dean Walworth, 55, was found dead and lying on the ground burned between the First Missionary Baptist Church and his Chickasha residence.

An Oklahoma State Medical Examiner's report, released Feb. 6, lists "significant observations and injury documentations" in Walworth's death as "apparent fire death" but goes on to list his probable cause of death as "undetermined".

Nearly 100 people came to a memorial for Walworth following his death. The pastor was known for helping those with drug addiction.
