Body could be missing Anaconda woman’s

BUTTE – Police in Western Montana say a decomposing body found in the Clark Fork River south of Deer Lodge has tattoos matching those of a missing Anaconda woman.

But Anaconda police Chief Tim Barkell said authorities have not yet confirmed the body as that of 41-year-old Tammy Salle.

The body found Saturday is being sent to the state crime lab in Missoula.

Salle was last seen on Dec. 23, and her family reported her missing three days later.

Salle’s boyfriend, John Goldberg, shot himself to death before police could question him. His body was found on Dec. 29.

Fishermen found the decomposing body in a shallow area in the middle of the river.

Burglars steal items from Girl Scout troop

MARYSVILLE, Wash. – Burglars have cost a Marysville Girl Scout troop about $500 in fundraising items they were saving for a trip to Europe.

The Everett Herald reported that burglars broke into a Marysville business a week ago that Troop 42047 was using to store donated items slated to be sold at a June garage sale.

The proceeds were to help pay for a trip to Europe in 2014.

Troop co-leader Lisa Samaniego said the cost of the trip is more than many of the girls’ families can afford, so the garage sale donations are important.

The burglary was discovered last Monday morning.

The thieves were selective, taking mainly high-end items, such as an Xbox 360, electronic games and tools.
