Body Found in St. Ignatius Believed to be Missing Woman

Posted: Updated:

ST. IGNATIUS -  Lake County officials said they believe they found the body of a St. Ignatius woman, who went missing on June 16th.

Lake County Undersheriff Dan Yonkin said a resident found what is believed to be the body of Mary Jean Decker, 52, on Thursday night southeast of St. Ignatius.

The body was found in a field near St. Mary's Lake Road about a mile away from her car.

Yonkin said an investigation showed Decker walked through the field and fell into an irrigation canal.  He added that it appeared Decker got herself out of the canal but died shortly after.

Decker's body was transported to the State Crime Lab in Missoula, where an autopsy and an identification verification will be conducted.
