MORRIS -- A Morris woman was found dead Monday afternoon on the 600 block of East 8th Street in Morris.

Morris Chief of Police Jim Beauregard said searchers found Heintzelman's body behind a shed on a property.

There is no indication of foul play, Beauregard said, although an official cause of death will not be known until completion of an autopsy.

Air sear-ches of the area were conducted Monday, and four search teams began working by spreading out from the area she was last seen and from her residence, which is about four or five blocks from where her body was found, Beauregard said.

Beauregard said the community responded to law enforcement's call to help find Heintzelman.

"We want to say thanks for the help we received from the community," he said. "We had a few people come out to volunteer with the search. It's much appreciated."
