Homicide investigation underway after decomposing body found in Ammon home

Bonneville County Sheriff's Office...

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - The Bonneville County Sheriff's Office is trying to identify a decomposed body that was found in a home in Ammon Sunday afternoon.  

The body is decomposed so much that it's not recognizable, Sheriff Paul Wilde said in a press conference Monday afternoon. He said it has been there for at least a week or more. They can't determine the body's gender or even the age of the person.  

The home at 2390 Ross Avenue is owned by Lisa Stukey. Investigators can not confirm she is the deceased person.   

Detectives are searching the home and talking with those who know Stukey, the sheriff said. He said they're treating it as a homicide investigation at this point.  

An autopsy was ordered and will take time to get the results, Wilde said. 

The sheriff didn't release what officers found inside the home, but that the body was found in a bedroom. 

Friends called deputies when they thought something was wrong, but the sheriff would not go into detail when the last time Stukey was last seen or contacted.
