Greene County investigators are trying to determine how a woman who was found in a Cedarville ditch last week was killed, said the county sheriff’s office.
On Tuesday, the sheriff’s office identified the remains of Kayla A. Archer, also known as Kayla Herchelroath, who was found by a driver around 6 p.m. on Friday close to the intersection of Rakestraw and Federalroads.
There were no signs of body decomposition, Greene County Sheriff Gene Fischer said.
Investigators do not know how long Archer had been dead before she was found, said Mjr. Eric Spicer, a spokesman for the Greene County Sheriff’s Office.
“We’re just trying to learn as much as we can and go from there,” Spicer said. “We don’t give specifics on what we’re doing. It’s an active investigation.”
No suspects have been identified at this time.
Investigators confirmed Archer, 44, was born in Pennsylvania but are still trying to determine where she lived. There is no indication she was living in the area at the time of her death, according to the sheriff’s office.
A Facebook page for Kayla Archer, which indicates she is also known as Dee Dee Herchelroath, states she is from Harrisburg, Pa., but lives in Terre Haute, Ind.
In her last Facebook post, dated May 27, Archer talked about her job at TRW Automotive.
“Back to work,” she wrote. “I really like my job. Yet, i still need that rest. I was exhausted yesterday. The pay is nice yet, need reat (sic).”
