    No arrests have been made to date and investigation continues in the death of Corrie J. Wood who was found inside her residence at 427 West 6th Street in Grant the morning of Saturday, Sept. 20.
    Perkins County Sheriff Jim Brueggeman said Monday the case, which was determined to be a homicide, is still actively being investigated and that he had spoken to the Nebraska State Patrol investigators the middle of last week.
    The State Patrol is awaiting processing of evidence on items submitted to their crime lab, said Sheriff Brueggeman.
    An autopsy following the death of the 28-year-old revealed she had died as a result of blows to the head and body. Wood had been celebrating her birthday a few days early with a group of friends the night before her death at the Cactus Palace Bar in Venango.
    At approximately 10 a.m. the next morning, a 911 call was made to the Perkins County Sheriff’s Office and Perkins County Ambulance from Wood’s boyfriend who found her unresponsive in her home. She was pronounced dead shortly thereafter by the Perkins County coroner.
    Anyone with information can report an anonymous tip to the Nebraska Crime Stoppers at 1-800-422-1494 and could be eligible for a $1,000 cash reward.
