The Platte County Sheriff's Office said it's had several leads in the case of a woman's body that was discovered last week by a fisherman at the Platte Falls Conservation Area.
Few details were released when the body was found on Wednesday, but the Sheriff's Office briefed the media on Monday.
Investigators said the victim is a white woman with short brown hair in her early 20s. Officers said they believe she had been fishing in the area sometime between May 30 and June 1. Officials said the woman was driving a brown older-model Chevy pickup.
"We're hoping people will think back and see if they saw something out of the ordinary in that area, or heard or saw people do unusual things," said Capt. Erik Holland of the Platte County Sheriff's Office
Investigators are waiting to officially release the victim's name. A manager at the Platte City Casey's store told KCTV5's Eric Chaloux that the victim was one of his workers. The manager said the woman was a good friend to all the people who work there.
The manager said he had warned the woman not to fish alone.
The staff said they are collecting money to help with funeral expenses for the 22-year-old
