Platte County authorities have turned over to St. Joseph police the death investigation of a woman whose body was found last week near Weston.
Evidence leads investigators to believe that the death of Tangela Fisher, 35, likely occurred in St. Joseph, authorities said Wednesday.
Her body was found inside a wooden box Friday along East Dye Store Road in rural Platte County. No cause of death has been determined. No additional information was released Wednesday.
On Tuesday, investigators released photos of the box, which they described as being homemade, that contained the body and various sizes of men’s and women’s clothing.
