Details are sketchy; one of those informed of the death said it apparently came after a heart attack.

House Speaker T. W. Shannon notified members of Norwood’s death in an email.

Norwood, 42 and a former University of Oklahoma football star from 1989 to 1992, was an 18-year veteran of the patrol. He died in an Oklahoma City hospital, the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety reported.

Norwood became a familiar figure as OHP media spokesman over his many years of service, often appearing on television, in radio newscasts, and in print stories.
