The Boone County Sheriff’s Department has identified a woman found dead Friday as 34-year-old Elise’ise Q. McNeal of Columbia.
Det. Tom O’Sullivan in a news release said preliminary autopsy results conducted Monday indicated McNeal died from gunshot wounds. Her death has also been linked to an arrest in southwest Missouri.
The Springfield News-Leader reported that 33-year-old Jason Roy Anderson of Boonville was arrested after police found firearms and 5,000 rounds of ammunition in the truck he was driving.
A probable cause statement said Anderson emerged from the truck and pointed a .22-caliber rifle at a Christian County deputy's car. The weapon apparently jammed at some point. It was unclear if any shots were fired. The deputy was not hurt.
The firearms were linked to to the address where McNeal was found dead Friday in the 6100 block of Hatton Chapel Road.
