Montgomery County death under investigation

A woman's body was found in a lake

Authorities are investigating the death of a woman found floating in a southeast Kansas lake as a homicide. 

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office said in Facebook post that hunters found the woman Thursday about a quarter-mile south of a boat ramp at the Card Creek camping area east of Independence. Paramedics loaded her into a boat and took her to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead. 

Officials released photos of tattoos on the woman's body to help with her identification, and she has now been identified as 33-year-old Cindy ``Pinky'' Ann Eason, of Miami, Oklahoma.
