Sheriff’s office IDs body found in rural Leavenworth County

LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) — The Leavenworth County Sheriff’s Office has identified the body of a woman found in a field over the weekend.

The sheriff’s office identified the woman as 22-year-old Karissa Warren of Kansas City, Kansas. Her body was discovered Sunday in rural Leavenworth County, and her death is being investigated as a homicide.

Investigators have said they believe Warren’s body was in the field for less than 24 hours. Authorities haven’t said whether they believe Warren was killed in the field or if her body was disposed of there.

Warren’s family say they don’t know who would want to hurt her or why, but her cousin notes Warren was a witness to her boyfriend’s killing.

Anyone with information about Warren’s death is asked to contact authorities.
