The Saline County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a woman’s death on Saturday as a homicide, and asking for the public’s help.

At a media conference Monday morning Saline County Undersheriff Roger Soldan said that the case is being worked as a homicide, but released few other details including the cause of death or weapons that may have been involved.

Soldan said that on Saturday night deputies were send to a family’s home at 10,525 S Hopkins Road in rural Saline County in reference to a death at the residence. 57-year-old Lori J Heimer was pronounced dead at the scene. Soldan said they believe that Heimer had died sometime earlier in the day, on Saturday afternoon.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation’s Crime Scene Response Team was called in to assist.

Soldan said that multiple officers are actively working the case including several deputies and investigators from his agency, 9 KBI agents and a KBI civilian employee, and an investigator from the Saline County Attorney’s Office.  The Saline County Mounted Patrol assisted in a search of the area. Soldan would not disclose what they were looking for.

Soldan says that they are actively looking for the killer, but no specific suspect has been identified. He is asking for the public’s help. Anyone who may have seen anything out of the ordinary in the area is asked to contact either the Saline County Sheriff’s Office (785) 826-6500 or the Kansas Bureau of Investigation at 1-800-KSCRIME.

In the meantime, Soldan advises residents in the area to keep their houses locked, to be aware of their surroundings, and to call if they see anything suspicious or someone in the area who they do not recognize.
