NAMPA, Idaho (AP) — The Canyon County coroner has confirmed the body found buried in a corn field near Melba was that of Nampa homicide victim Selena Dawn Thomas. The body was found Thursday and fully exhumed by 12:30 p.m. Friday. Nampa police say the autopsy was completed Friday evening.

Officers began searching in the field Wednesday evening after Thomas’ boyfriend reportedly told officers he hit her in the head with a hammer then pushed her and caused her to hit her head on a dresser.

Court records say he told investigators he wrapped her body in a sheet, stuffed her into the trunk of her car and buried her in the corn field with the help of three other men. Alfredo Martin Martinez is jailed on a parole violation but has not been charged in Thomas’ death.
