Tuesday the Monona County Sheriff’s Office received a request for a welfare check on 66-year-old Cheryl Stowe.
She was not found at her residence but deputies made contact with and arrested her grandson, Eliot Stowe on an outstanding warrant for a probation violation.
On Wednesday, Monona County Deputies and D-N-R personnel located a deceased person a short distance from Stowe’s residence.
