JUNE 14, 2006 - Posted at 1:28 p.m. CST

 

CARUTHERSVILLE, MO - The body of a black female found in a field near Steele, Missouri late last week has been identified as that of a Blytheville (Arkansas) woman. 

According to Pemiscot County Sheriff Tommy Greenwell, authorities have identified the woman as 44-year-old Rosemary Rockett.  Rockett was reported missing to Blytheville authorities on June 2, and was last seen alive on May 30.  Her body was discovered Friday by a farmer near the intersection of Pemiscot County roads 556 and 547.

An autopsy performed Sunday determined that the woman was not the victim of a gunshot wound, stabbing, blunt trauma or strangulation.  Authorities are still awaiting toxicology test results.

Anyone with more information regarding Rockett's disappearance and death is urged to contact the Pemiscot County Sheriff's Department at 573-333-4101, or the Blytheville Police Department at 870-762-0400.
