Woman whose body found in Fox River was shot

APPLETON, Wis. (AP) -- Outagamie County sheriff's officials say a woman whose body was pulled from the Fox River near Wrightstown had been shot.

Authorities say the woman most likely was shot in Rapide Croche Park sometime between 7 a.m. and 2 p.m. last Friday.

The woman died from a single gunshot. Investigators have ruled out suicide. The victim's name has not been released, but officials say she was in her early 50s and was from Wisconsin.

WLUK-TV says sheriff's deputies want to talk to anyone who was in or near the park or boating on the river below the dam last Friday.
