[Note: married Stan Looney 1941 - ?]

A "badly" decomposed body was found in a pile of flood debris along the banks of the James River Tuesday afternoon. Police said it was too early to tell w hose body it was, though it may be the body of a Hollister woman reported missing since Feb. 16. "At this point, it's really, really hard to say" who it is, said Christian County Sheriff's Department Investigator Roger Huffman. "As of now, we are going to have to wait for the autopsy and make the identification by some other form of records." Huffman said at the scene the gender of the body was not known. The body was discovered around 1:30 p.m. by three elderly men scavenging the banks of the river along a dirt road south of Highway FF1 and FF4 in northern Christian County. They were looking for old cans and bottles, Huffman said. One of the men smelled something bad and went for a closer look. It was then that he found a skull, Huffman said. He then called the sheriffs’ department and an officer was sent to the scene. The officer called back, verifying the claim, and Huffman, Investigator Bill Miller, Sheriff Steve Whitney and the State Highway Patrol were sent to the scene. Police used a backhoe to pull the body from the debris. It was around 6:30 p.m. that the body was finally pulled from the debris. "It's in a pretty bad state," Huffman said of the body. He said it appeared animals had been picking at the body. "It looks like that may have been going on," Huffman said. "It doesn't take long for (animals) to get at it." On Feb. 16, Leah Looney was reported missing when her ex-husband, Stan Looney, told Greene County Sheriff's Deputies his truck was swept into the James River when his wife drove across a swollen low-water bridge. He told police he was able to escape but his wife was not. Earlier rescue efforts included searches by divers as well as an early-April search through piles of wood and brush debris created by high river levels in Greene County.


Looney, Leah Kathy (Daniels) Cameron 1944 - 16 Feb 1990 OH 3 May 1990

A coroner's inquest has been set to look into the death of a 44-year-old Hollister woman found along the banks of the James River in northern Christian County. Authorities are looking for clues in the cause of death of' Leah Looney, who was identified by family members who said a necklace, blue jeans, socks and a black shoe matched those of Looney. Christian County Sheriff Steve Whitney was to meet with Greene County Sheriff John Pierponte and a task force that has looked into the case involving Looney; who was reported missing Feb. 15 by her ex-husband. An inquest by Christian County Coroner Arthur Adams was planned for Wednesday night to look for clues to determine if Looney died "as the result of accident, homicide or suicide.” An autopsy performed last week in St. Louis failed to identify Looney, whose body was so badly decomposed that it was impossible to use fingerprints for identification. Dental records were also of no use since her dentures were missing. Family members finally identified Looney Friday at the Greene County Sheriff's Department. Her body was discovered last Tuesday by three elderly men who were scavenging the banks of the James River, looking for old cans and bottles. Looney was reported missing in mid-February after her ex-husband, Stanford Claude Looney; 49, told authorities the two were in a pickup that was swept off a low-water bridge on the James River near Springfield. The body was found about four miles downstream from where Stan Looney said the body had been swept into the river.
