Police Continue Search For Clues In Woman's Death 6-08-2011

PLATTE COUNTY, Mo. A week after her body was found, investigators returned to the scene on Wednesday as friends and family continue to mourn, despite the fact investigators said she still hasn't been identified.
A woman's body was discovered last week by a fisherman at the Platte Falls Conservation Area. 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.
Dive teams from the Missouri State Highway Patrol searched the murky waters of the Platte River for hours Wednesday morning in depths reaching as much as 20 feet in some areas. Investigators said divers pulled several man-made items to the surface -- some of which may be related to the crime.
"She wasn't scared of anything," said the victim's friend, Ron Stone. "She liked the outdoors and nature -- and here we are now."
Ron stone was the 22-year-old victim's friend and manager. He said the young woman is sorely missed tonight.
"She was very pleasant -- smiled all the time," Stone said. "She was always concerned about everybody. Just a good girl."
Stone said the young woman's family has been through a lot recently. She lost her mother to cancer last year. And now coworkers can't imagine how her family will get through this loss.
A collection has been taken up for funeral expenses.
The victim's family said they emptied her apartment Wednesday. They said it was a sad step to take when they still don't know who killed their precious family member.
"I don't know who it is for sure," said Joseph King of the Platte County Sheriff's Department. "The purpose of that is to make sure the investigation is done properly. We're waiting for lab results for positive ID."
