BRENHAM, TX (KXXV) -

According to the Washington County, an open criminal death investigation is underway of the death of a woman that died in Brenham.

On July 11 at around 6:38 p.m. the Brenham Police Department said they were dispatched to the Brenham State Supported Living Center in reference to a medical call.

Upon arrival,  police found a woman to be unresponsive in a car. 

The woman was identified as 48-year-old Amy Parrish. Parrish was a client of the Brenham State School - a State Supported Center in Washington County. 

Parrish was pronounced dead at 7:18 p.m. on July 11 at Baylor Scott and White Hospital in Brenham. 

At the time of her death, Parrish was a client resident of the state-run facility. 

The State Supported Living Center said one of their residents had been unaccounted for over the course of several hours. They said she was found in the back of a van on campus late afternoon. They said they started CPR immediately and then was transported to the hospital.

Two workers at the Brenham State Living Center have been reassigned. Workers who have been reassigned cannot be in direct contact with client residents. 

Parrish body was sent to Travis County for an autopsy to be performed.

Brenham police said they are turning the investigation over to the Office of the Inspector General. 

Amy's father passed away on 2013 at the age of 70. He was born in Kemp, TX on May 13, 1942. He had donated to Brenham State School, Equality Texas and the Tyler Museum of Art among others. 

Amy's mother Alice said she appreciates the call but doesn't want to talk about her daughter and ask for privacy.
