COOPER TOWNSHIP (WKZO-AM) — Kalamazoo County Detectives are now calling the death of a woman found dumped in a field on the northern edge of Cooper Township a homicide and released the name of the victim.
Undersheriff Pauli Matyas says an autopsy has confirmed the identity of the victim as 36-year-old Kelly Ann Karl, a white female who had resided in Kalamazoo. The autopsy apparently also confirmed their suspicions that foul play was involved.
Her body was recovered from a remote location in the 3000 Block of West AB Avenue Thursday morning.
Services will be held Thursday at 11 am at the Betzler Life Story Funeral Home on Stadium Drive.
A person of interest remains jailed on unrelated charges, and the investigation continues. The name of that person has not been released by County Detectives.
TV-8 is reporting that her husband, 40-year-old Kevin Stanfill is currently being held in the Kalamazoo County Jail for
