Cornfield Body

Authorities say a 31-year-old woman's body was found a cornfield in southwest Iowa this weekend.

The woman's body was found Saturday night in a field west of Lenox in Taylor County. The woman's identity and the cause of her death have not been released. But the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation says preliminary information didn't show any obvious sign of foul play. An autopsy will be performed early this week. The DCI is working with the Iowa State Patrol and local authorities on the case.
