ELKHART — The woman whose body was found earlier today outside American Countryside on C.R. 26 has been identified as 45-year-old Debbie McDowell of Elkhart, according to an Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department report.

This case is being investigated as a homicide, the report says. Police are investigating information that indicates a possible link between this case and a body found in the parking lot of the former Poor Tony’s Restuarant, 2210 Franklin St. in Elkhart. According to the report, Elkhart police responded to this location after receiving information that a male there might have had information about the death of McDowell. The man, identified as Ervin K. Howard, 63, was found dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

According to the report, autopsies will be performed early next week.

Maui County voters will decide in the next few weeks whether to ban the cultivation of genetically engineered organisms, at least temporarily. A “yes” vote on the Nov. 4 ballot initiative would require large multinational companies that research new varieties of corn and soybeans in Maui to stop farming until they are able to prove their methods are safe. This could upend global agriculture giant Monsanto’s research pipeline for new varieties of corn and soybeans. (AP Photo/The Maui News, Matthew Thayer)
