No new leads known in quarry homicide

MANCHESTER, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the Coffee County Sheriff's Office continue working a homicide case in which a woman's burned body was found in an old rock quarry.

Sheriff's Investigator Bill Marcom told the Chattanooga Times Free Press on Monday no new evidence had surfaced in the death of 51-year-old Connie Lou Brown.

A family exploring discovered Brown's body March 9 at the quarry, known locally as the Summitville Caves.

A preliminary autopsy showed Brown died of a single gunshot wound to the chest.
