AMMON — Bonneville County Sheriff deputies continue to investigate the discovery of a badly decomposed body in an Ammon home Sunday.

In a news release, Sgt. Bryan Lovell said due to the size and contents inside the house, a careful and proper examination is proving to be time consuming.

The autopsy of the victim began yesterday in Boise and is continuing at this time. The extensive decomposition of the body also makes this a time consuming process. Results of the autopsy are not yet available and pathologists are working closely with the sheriff’s office to complete that portion of the investigation.

The identity of the body has still not been confirmed, and the owner of the home, Lisa Stukey, has not been located.

Detectives are in the process of locating anyone related to or who may have information about Stukey. The Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office continues to urge anyone who may know of or about Stukey to contact detectives through dispatch at (208) 529-1200.

Earlier this week, Bonneville County Sheriff Paul Wilde said the death is being investigated as a murder until that can be ruled out.
