Saline County investigators said they are anticipating more arrests in the murder of a Salina woman whose body was found yesterday.

Authorities have confirmed that the body recovered northwest of Salina Thursday afternoon is 27-year-old Kristin Tyler, who had been missing since April 25. A deputy searching near a bridge in the 2000 block of West Stimmel Road made the discovery. Investigators said no attempt was made to hide the body.

The man initially called a 'person of interest' in Tyler's disappearance is now being held for her murder. Saline County jail records show 24-year-old Joel Heil is being held on premeditated first degree murder. He was arrested on a probation violation at an Abilene hotel earlier this week.

Information on other possible suspects has not been released.
