Vernon County Sheriff Ron Peckman says, "a friend of Belinda Jean Beisly, 47, called our office to check the well being of the woman yesterday (07-15-09) after she hadn't shown up for work at 3M, or called in sick. Peckman said deputies went to her home on Route H about 4:15 p.m. and found her dead."
Peckman, won't comment on if there were any signs of a struggle in the house or if Beisley's death could have been a murder for hire. "Were holding to ourselves so that we can finish up some interviews." Peckman adds that he won't comment on any suspect/s until we get more information."
Vernon County coroner, David Ferry, says an autopsy "showed Mrs. Beisly died, "of multiple gunshot wounds."
Peckman says that investigators are interviewing "several persons of interets "that had contact with Beisly in the days leading up to her death.
Belinda Beisly was separated from her husband, Bob BeislyII, and living with her son at the time of her murder. Friends say the family owns Rockin' B Ranch North of Deerfield, and her estranged husband runs Beisly Oil in Nevada.
