The body of a Texas woman missing since December has been found in Cody, according to the Cody Police Department.
Department officials said the body of Rachel Sirman, 29, was found Monday. Investigators do not suspect foul play in Sirman’s death.
According to the Cody Police Department, officers responded at about 10 a.m. Monday to a report of part of a body being found.
During the preliminary investigation, officers learned landscapers were working behind a residence when they discovered the remains on a hillside near Sulfur Creek.
A cadaver dog later led officers to discover additional remains at the bottom of the creek.
Personal property found at the scene confirmed the body as being that of Sirman.
Sirman was reported as missing to the department on Dec. 16 by her family. Cody police had intermittent contact with Sirman between September 2020 and June 2021, as she was a transient and was known to camp in the area where her remains were found.
Final reports from the forensic pathologist and local coroner are still pending.
