Body found after hostage escapes

Authorities were working a crime scene in the Pottawatomie County panhandle near Prague late Wednesday night, where a body was found after a woman being held hostage reportedly escaped.

Crews were awaiting a search warrant to further their investigation, which was expected to last well into the overnight hours.
Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Capt. Travis Palmer said the investigation into what happened was commencing at a rural home.

Deputies found one body at the scene, he said, and were talking with a woman who had been held against her will and had escaped. That woman was taken to the hospital for treatment.  Palmer said they identified a male and female as persons of interest in the case, and those two were being questioned late Wednesday night.
