(LAPEL) - Police believe a body found in a cornfield's tree line is that of a central Indiana man missing since authorities say he fatally shot his ex-girlfriend's daughter nearly two months ago.
Madison County Sheriff Ron Richardson tells The Herald Bulletin that the coroner's office must confirm the body's identity, but that items found with the body make investigators confident that it is Roy Parmley.
Lawrence County Police had posted fliers in stores around the county, because police learned Parmley has a relative who lives in the Heltonville area.
Richardson says deer hunters setting up cameras found the body Sunday in a rural area between Lapel and Anderson.
Police have been searching for the 53-year-old Parmley since the June 9 shooting. Police say he shot 31-year-old Amanda Wiles in the head after breaking into the home she shared with her mother days after the older woman ended a relationship with Parmley.
