The Robeson County Sheriff's Department is investigating the circumstances behind a body that was found in a field, Saturday afternoon.
A neighbor discovered a woman's body in a field across from her home on Hero Lane just outside the city limits of Maxton.
The woman has been identified as 33-year-old LaTonya Thompson Davis, according to Major Anthony Thompson.
He says she was shot in the chest.
At this time, investigators are treating her death as a homicide, but that could change pending autopsy results.
Preliminary results are expected sometime Monday.
We will have more information as it becomes available.
