      Woman's body found in swampy field in St. Lawrence County

      State police say they're investigating the death of a 58-year-old woman whose body was found in a swampy area near her northern New York home.

      Investigators tell the Watertown Daily Times that Kathy Eckstein's body was found Tuesday morning by a neighbor walking in a swampy field not far from Eckstein's home in the St. Lawrence County town of Brasher, near the Canadian border.

      Police say she was reported missing by her family Monday. Authorities say there was no sign of foul play.

      An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday to determine the cause of death.
