Updated: July 05, 2018 08:42 PM

Authorities have issued an arrest warrant for a man after the body of a missing Indiana woman was found in northern Minnesota.


The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office says investigators located the body of Christina Marie Woods in a shallow grave in Beatty Township, near Cook, on Monday.  Woods, a 28-year-old from South Bend, had been reported missing in early June.

An autopsy found Woods died of homicidal violence.

An arrest warrant was issued for 40-year-old Daniel Gregory Lynn of South Bend.  The sheriff's office says the property where Woods' body was found belongs to a relative of Lynn.

Authorities believe Woods was killed sometime during the week of June 11.  Lynn was seen in the Duluth and Virginia/Mountain Iron areas in the days following the death.  Authorities believe he may have returned to Indiana, but say he may still be in Minnesota or elsewhere.

Lynn  is 5'10" and weighs 210 pounds.  He has tattoos on both sides of his neck, is bald, and was last known to have a mustache and goatee.

Anyone who's seen Lynn is asked to call the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office at 218-742-9825.
