Texas woman's body found in southeast Kansas


SCAMMON, Kan. (AP) — The Cherokee County sheriff says the death of a Texas woman whose body was found in a field is considered suspicious.

Sheriff David Groves says the body of 35-year-old Shannon Fonda, of Midland, Texas, was found Monday near Scammom in southeast Kansas.

Groves says an autopsy will determine her cause of death. He says investigators are not sure why Fields was in the Scammon area.

The Joplin Globe reports that Groves said Fonda appeared to have died recently. No other information was immediately available.
