ROELAND PARK, Kan. (AP) -- Police in a Kansas City suburb have identified a decomposed body that was found Sunday.
Officials say the body was that of 43-year-old Sandra Herron-Burns, who had been reported missing from a nearby apartment in December.
Her body was discovered Sunday in Roeland Park. Police used fingerprints to identify her and an autopsy will be conducted to determine her cause of death.
Law enforcement officers are investigating after a decomposed body was found in a wooded area of a Kansas City suburb.
The body was found Sunday evening in Roeland Park, Kan. Police say it was so badly decomposed that detectives were not able to determine the race, gender or age of the deceased.
Police took the body to the Johnson County Crime lab for further investigation.
