Police: Body of missing Wisconsin woman found


September 23, 2014

WAUSAU Wausau police say they have found the body of a woman missing for nearly four years.

Police Chief Jeff Hardel said Monday that the body of Stephanie Low was found Friday in a shallow grave in the national forest near Wabeno.

Low disappeared from her Wausau apartment on Oct. 10, 2010. In 2012, police identified a person of interest in her disappearance.

Hardel says that man reportedly told witnesses he had gone to Low's apartment with the intent of stealing from her, and when she fought back, he strangled and stabbed her.

Police say the 34-year-old man led them to Low's grave last week. WSAW-TV (http://bit.ly/1ueudMG ) reports the man did not confess to the killing.

No charges have been filed so far, but police say charges will be coming.
