There may be a new lead in the case of a missing Canton woman.
49-year old Sharon Dejaro Ragland of Canton was reported missing last week when she didn't show up for work at her job in Tyler.
On Wednesday morning, a burned body of a woman was found near Lancaster. Investigators say the body also suffered an apparent gunshot wound to the head.
Sharon was reported missing last week when she didn't show up for work at her job in Tyler. Her estranged husband, Barry Stephen Ragland, was arrested in Desoto, brought back to East Texas and charged with her murder.
Up until now, the search has focused primarly on the waters of Canton Lake. Canton Police are continuing their search efforts in East Texas. When investigators heard about the discovery in the Metroplex, they did request Sharon's dental records.
