Police: Body found in Kansas City well identified
KANSAS CITY - Kansas City police say the body found last week in a city-owned well has been identified as a 27-year-old woman, though the cause of her death hasn't been released.
Police say Janina Vasquez's body was discovered in a 25-foot well near the Missouri River on Feb. 19.
Police said in a news release Thursday that the case still is being investigated, and the local medical examiner hasn't yet made a ruling as to what caused the death.
The body was found by Kansas City water department workers, but city officials say the body was in a flood-control well and not one relating to drinking water.
