Investigators continue to search for leads in Tennessee rock quarry homicide
Agents and investigators are continuing to examine what happened to a 51-year-old woman whose partially burned body was found in an old rock quarry in Tennessee on March 9, Times Free Press reported.
Preliminary autopsy reports show that the woman, Connie Lou Brown, died of a single gunshot in the chest.
Investigators identified the body based on a missing person report from Warren County.
Warren County Sheriff Jackie Matheny said one of Brown’s friends from the area reported her missing after not hearing from her for 7-10 days.
Though Brown was found in an area known as “Summitville caves,” which is often used for hiking and riding all-terrain vehicles, Sheriff’s Investigator Bill Marcom said she was not dressed for those activities.
At the beginning of the investigation, TBI spokeswoman Kristin Helm said officials believe Brown was killed elsewhere.
