Holts Summit police say a body found outside a central Missouri gas station was a 44-year-old Chilhowee woman.

Police Sgt. Marc Haycook says the body found Thursday was Jessica Murafetis, and her death is being investigated as a homicide. He said in an email that no further details would be released as the investigation proceeds.

The Futon Sun reports an employee of the ExxonMobil station in Holts Summit discovered the body.

An autopsy was scheduled for Friday to determine the cause of death.

Police consider the case a homicide but have no suspects.
