Body in Florida identified as ex-sheriff’s sister

 According to reports, a body found last year in Florida has been identified as Martha Wever, the sister of former LaGrange County Sheriff and state representative Dale Sturtz.

Wever’s body was reportedly discovered in April 2013 in a wooded area behind a truck stop, but was only recently identified by Florida authorities. Reports noted that a forensic anthropologist created a likeness of the person based on bones and eyeglasses found at the scene. A photo of that likeness was circulated in Kentucky where Wever was reported missing.

A friend of Wever’s, Ralph H. Penrod, has reportedly been collecting Wever’s pension checks since her disappearance. He has been arrested and charged in her death.
