NW Mo. Woman's Death Considered Suspicious
RIDGEWAY (AP) - Authorities say the death of a 28-year-old northwest Missouri woman is considered suspicious.
A passer-by found the body of Brooke Peery Whitney Sunday in a field in rural Ridgeway, in Harrison County. Sheriff Josh Eckerson says investigators are awaiting autopsy and toxicology results before deciding whether the death was a homicide. He says no other details will be released until the test results are available.
The St. Joseph News-Press reports Whitney last lived in Mercer County, but she had recently lived in Bethany and Cainsville. She left behind three children.
