Investigators Have Person of Interest in Dawna Natzke Murder

The Garland County Sheriff's Office says they have a person of interest in the murder of a police dispatcher and mother of 3 whose body was found in the woods on New Year's Eve.

Lt. Corky Martin says the Sheriff Department is still awaiting autopsy results but they do have enough information to announce they are investigating the death of Dawna Natzke as a homicide and they do have someone they consider a person of interest, although they are not releasing any names.

Natzke was last seen leaving a holiday party on Dec. 21. She was reported missing two days later when she didn't show up for work in Hot Springs Village.

Her boyfriend told authorities that he hadn't seen her since the night of the party.

Searchers found Natzke's body on Dec. 31 in a remote part of the woods. It was a few miles from where her burned-out station wagon had been found the week before.
