Person of interest questioned in decomposing body case

The body discovered on a back porch of a Camdenton home has been confirmed as a female.

More DNA analysis is necessary because the body was severely decomposed. Investigators believe the body to be that of the woman who rented the home.

Tuesday night, detectives arrested 30-year-old Jamison D. Shelton at a Jefferson City motel on unrelated warrants. Shelton is a known associate and recent roommate of the tenant.

The investigation is ongoing and further information will be released as soon as it becomes available.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Sergeant Chris Moehle at 573-346-2243.
