Body of Missing Tennessee Woman Found on Railroad

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Police in Memphis say a railroad worker found the body of a missing woman on some tracks.

Diana Franklin had failed to return from a trip to casinos in nearby Tunica, Mississippi.

Police found her car Sunday. It was nowhere near her home.

Later the same day, the railroad worker spotted her body about three miles down the tracks from where the car was found.

Police believe Franklin went to Tunica alone on Saturday. They don't know if she won money at the casinos.
