Authorities believe a body discovered on Tuesday in Edgecombe County is that of a missing Nash County woman.

Diana Alejandra Keel, 38, of Nashville was reported missing by her husband Friday.

The body belongs to a Hispanic female and appears to have been dead for about five days, said Nash County Sheriff Keith Stone.

An autopsy is expected to confirm the identity and cause of death. Stone said foul play is apparent.

The body was found by a state transportation worker along Pokes Hole Road, between N.C. 33 and N.C. 97, about four miles from Leggett. The road dead ends at a field along the Tar River.

Crime scene investigators with the Nash County Sheriff's Office, Edgecombe County Sheriff's Office and the Rocky Mount Police Department were at the location Tuesday evening.

Keel's residence on Old County Home Road in Nashville was surrounded with crime scene tape. Helicopters and cadaver dogs had been used in her search. The FBI joined the investigation Tuesday.

Her husband, Lynn Keel, is the last person to see her Friday at the home. The husband told authorities that his wife left Friday with some friends and didn't return.

Authorities confirmed that Lynn Keel’s first wife, Elizabeth Bess Edwards Keel, died in 2006 at the same house.

Lynn Keel told investigators at the time that the 42-year-old woman slipped and fell on the back steps.

Diana Keel is an emergency room nurse in Wilson. Her employer reported she had not reported to work in the past few days. Her vehicle was still parked at her home Friday when she was reported missing.

Anyone with information about the investigation can call the Nash County Sheriff’s Office at 252-459- 4121 or Twin County Crime Stoppers at 252-977-1111.
