The death of a woman whose body was found in Goshen County is being investigated by the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation and the Goshen County Sheriff’s Office.

According to the sheriff’s office, officers were called Monday morning to a home in Goshen County where a woman’s body was found. No indication was given as to where the home was, whether it was Torrington, Lingle, La Grange or another town in the county.

Her death is considered suspicious, the sheriff’s office said, but no more information was available as of Tuesday morning, including the woman’s name or manner of death.

Since this is an ongoing investigation, no further details could be released.

However, if police do determine the woman’s death a murder, it would be the second in the county in less than two months.

Shawn Logan Pettus was charged in April with first-degree murder in the death of Madison Cook, 20, a Torrington resident.

Cook’s body was discovered in a Torrington residence in April as the result of an investigation into an arson-caused fire at Pettus’ tattoo shop.
