Kansas City woman found murdered in central Missouri field

HOLTS SUMMIT, Mo - A Kansas City woman was found murdered in a field just north of Jefferson City.

An employee of a business in Holts Summit, Mo., found Jessica Murafetis about 11:30 a.m. Thursday near the 100 block of East Simon Boulevard, according to a Holts Summit Police Department release.

Murafetis, 44, was wearing a long sleeved red shirt with the words "Covenant Towing and Recovery" and green United State Marine Corps sweatpants.

She has no known connection to the Holts Summit or Jefferson City areas, police said.

The condition of the body prevented an autopsy from being done Friday.

The Holts Summit Police Department is working with several other law enforcement agencies on the case.

Anyone with information about the case should call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.
