Leavenworth County authorities investigating homicide after woman’s body found

LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) — The Leavenworth County Sheriff’s Office says it’s investigating a homicide after a woman’s body was found in a field over the weekend.

Officials haven’t released the name of the victim found Sunday. Investigators believe the body was in the field for less than 24 hours. Authorities didn’t say whether they believe the woman was killed in the field or if her body was disposed of there.

Major Jim Sherly with the sheriff’s office says investigators want to speak with anyone who may have heard or seen anything around the field that’s in a rural part of the county. Anyone with information is asked to contact authorities.
