HANCOCK COUNTY, Ind. - Investigators determined a woman who was found dead in a cornfield in Hancock County last week was fatally shot.

Investigators said dispatchers had received a 911 call from two men who were riding their bicycles on County Road 800 West when they saw the body in a nearby cornfield.
The Marion County coroner confirmed Monday that Miller died of a gunshot wound to the head. Her death was ruled a homicide.
