CHICAGO -- (WGN) -- Chicago tourist Anne Swaney was found murdered in Belize last week. Autopsy results determined that she was strangled. An examination also revealed lacerations and bruises on her head.
The 39-year-old journalist was vacationing at a popular destination for Americans when authorities say they found her dead body in the Mopan River on January 15. Police and their canine team began searching for Swaney the day before when an employee of Nabitunich Cottages and Farm reported that she was missing.
