This week marks four years since the body of an eastern Kansas woman was found in a field near her hometown, and authorities are appealing again for any information about the killing.


Forty-seven-year-old Tonie L. Standley lived in Quenemo (KWIHN'-uh-moh), about 35 miles southeast of Topeka. She was last seen alive Dec. 7, 2006, at her home in the town of about 450 people near the Osage-Franklin county line.


Hunters found Standley's body 15 days later in a field in Franklin County, about two miles from her home. The death was ruled a homicide.


The Ottawa Herald reports that the Franklin County Sheriff's Office continues to investigate the killing, and wants to hear from anyone who might have information - even if it seems unimportant. Callers can remain anonymous.
