Chase follows discovery of woman’s body August

December 6, 2011


— Two people are being questioned in the suspicious death of a 69-year-old woman in southeastern Kansas.

KAKE-TV reports the two suspects were arrested Monday night after leading officers on a 20-mile chase in the woman's car.

Butler County Sheriff Kelly Herzet says officers making a welfare check found Loyce Cody dead in her home in Augusta around 10 a.m. Monday after she failed to show up for work. The cause of death has not been released, but the sheriff says it's considered suspicious.

About seven hours later, deputies working another investigation spotted Cody's car and followed it. The sheriff says the driver sped off at speeds of up to 100 mph. The driver and passenger were booked on traffic charges after the chase ended in Cowley County.
