Woman's body identified; foul play suspected
The woman's body found in the town of Deerfield has been identified as Jennifer Bennet. The body was identified through the use of fingerprints.
Authorities said autopsy results showed that foul play was involved, but they are still uncertain how Bennet died.
Oneida County Sheriff Daniel Middaugh said, "The conclusion right now is that it's suspicious with foul play, but there won't be any determination until toxicology reports come back."
Officials said it could take two to four weeks before they receive the toxicology results. While they wait, they'll continue to investigate, but they're are no suspects at this point.
Middaugh said, "We'll begin interviewing several of the leads we've taken in."
Investigators do know that Bennet was married with three children, but she was not living with her husband at the time. Instead, she was living in Utica with her mother and was last seen by friends January 7th.
