Authorities have identified the Forsyth County woman who died Sunday after being run over by a pickup truck, but have not found her family.

Forsyth County Sheriff's Capt. Frank Huggins said investigators are looking for relatives of  43-year-old Lisa Rae Munro of 8015 Nichols Road.

Munro's boyfriend, 71-year-old John Lindsey Jordan, has been charged with vehicular homicide in the first degree and driving under the influence in connection with her death.

Jordan was released Tuesday from the Forsyth County Detention Center, a jail spokesman said, after posting a $17,985 bond.

He was arrested after the incident Sunday, which occurred about 5:15 p.m. at the couple's northwestern Forsyth County home.

According to a sheriff's report, the investigating deputy arrived to find Jordan on his knees holding Munro in his arms on the side of the road.

The deputy reported that Munro was unresponsive and that Jordan said she had slipped and fallen.

Asked what else had happened, the report said Jordan told the deputy Munro "was holding onto the toolbox in the bed of his truck trying to stop him from leaving and she had slipped and fell under the left rear tire and he ran her over."

Jordan was driving a 1993 Ford F150 pickup truck.

Fire and emergency medical personnel were not able to resuscitate Munro at the scene.

According to the report, field sobriety tests determined Jordan was under the influence of alcohol and drugs. He was taken to Northside Hospital-Forsyth for further evaluation.

Munro's body could be kept for up to two months by the county coroner. If no one were to come forward, her body would be buried in a pauper's grave.
