SALINA, Kansas -- Authorities are pursuing a first-degree murder charge against 24-year-old Joel Heil.
He was arrested Thursday morning in the case of Kristin Tyler.
The 27-year-old mother had been missing for two weeks. Her body was found by a Saline County deputy Thursday afternoon.
An official from the Salina Police Department told KSN that her body was in a ravine near I-70, and it's possible it had been there for the entire two weeks.
As tips began to come in after Tyler's disappearance was reported, officials say they started to think the case might end badly.
"Fairly early on, we felt there was foul play and that's when we really started investigating and amping it up, seeing what uh, kind of put a full court press on to find what we could. As each day went by, it was certainly more evident that was the case," said Lieutenant Scott Siemsen from the Salina Police Department.
He went on to say there's a possibility of more arrests in the case.
Heil is expected in court early next week for his first appearance.
