On Monday, April 15, 2019, at 9:07 a.m., the Marshalltown Police Department received a report of a

discovered corpse in a farm field just east of Walmart (2800 block of South Center Street). Upon arrival,

law enforcement located the body of what appears to be an adult, female. The identity of the body

cannot be confirmed at this time. Preliminary information suggests this could be the body of Michelle

Marie Grommet, age 32, of Mason City, Iowa. Ms. Grommet was reported to the Marshalltown Police

Department as a missing person on March 22.

At this time, there is no evidence or information known to investigators that suggests foul play is

associated with this death. The manner and cause of death will not be known until an autopsy is

completed. The Marshalltown Police Department and the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation

continue to investigate the discovery of this body and the Grommet missing person case. The Marshall

County Sheriff's Office and the Mason City Police Department have also assisted with this investigation.

Anyone with information concerning this incident should contact the Marshalltown Police Department
