Police: Woman Was Fatally Shot

An autopsy determined that a woman who was found dead in her Kokomo home over the weekend died of a gunshot wound to her head, police said Monday.

Authorities said they are investigating the death of Barbara Ferguson, 45, as a homicide.

Kokomo police officers found Barbara Ferguson's body in her residence in the 3000 block of Vinton Circle on Saturday afternoon.

Police said they entered the home after Ferguson's daughter told them that she had found broken glass at the residence's back door.

The daughter told officers she had tried unsuccessfully for two days to contact Ferguson before she went to the home and saw the glass.

Anyone with information about the shooting can contact Kokomo police Lt. Don Whitehead at (765) 456-7248, the Kokomo Police Hotline at (765) 456-7017, or Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at (800) 922-5378.
