    Osage County Undersheriff Lou Ann Brown says 43-year-old Deanna Kay Pierce was using a large lawnmower on an incline Monday when the accident occurred. Brown tells the Examiner-Enterprise (http://bit.ly/12UQwqK ) that the lawnmower rolled over and pinned Pierce underneath.
     
    Brown says a friend discovered Pierce at about 2:50 p.m. Monday on the rural Okesa property near U.S. 60.
     
    Brown says the sheriff's office is awaiting a report from the state medical examiner on Pierce's cause of death.
