Visit shrouded in mystery

KBI in county
to investigate death

Officials are tight-lipped about why two Kansas Bureau of Investigation teams came to Marion County on Friday to investigate the death of a Wichita woman.

Shalan Niccole Gannon, 27, was reported missing April 10. Her body was found June 7 in the Ninnescah River in Sumner County and was identified June 12.

KBI’s crime scene unit and major incident response unit were at the sheriff’s office Friday morning and seen later at a Canada address.

“All I can say is we are assisting KBI with a case,” undersheriff David Huntley said.

KBI spokesman Melissa Underwood declined to provide details about what connection Marion County has to the case. No other details about the case have been released by KBI.

Underwood said Tuesday no arrests had been made.
