Danielle Anderson Turner, 24, of Maumelle was found dead in her home on Thursday, Nov. 7, Chief Sam Williams said.
She had just turned 24 last month.
He said the girl’s grandmother found her dead in her own bed.
While the county coroner and Maumelle detectives are closely examining the death, Lt. Jim Hansard said no foul play was suspected at this time.
Turner graduated from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock’s nursing program last year,
She is survived by a son, Aiden Turner and a fund has been established at Arvest Bank to accept donations for him.
Barbara Dalby said Dani, as she was called, played soccer for Mount St. Mary’s and was an exceptional player and became a good friend to her daughters.
She said Dani wanted so badly for her son to also get a good education at the St. Edwards private school and that’s the purpose of the fund.
Dani is survived by her grandparents, David and Maggie Anderson; son, Aiden Anderson, of Arkansas; grandmother, Pat Villa, of Connecticut; mother, Cheryl Saccoccia, of Arkansas; father, Gary Saccoccia, of Connecticut; sister, Dael Usrey, of Arkansas; three brothers, Adam Cintron, of Arkansas, Tom Anderson, of Texas and Michael Anderson, of Massachusetts; and great great grandmother, Mildred Kilgore.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Aiden Turner (account # 2158) at Arvest Bank, 13301 Crystal Hill Road, North Little Rock, Arkansas 72113.
Funeral services will be held 11 a.m., Monday at North Little Rock Funeral Home. Burial will be private.
