WAUHILLAU — A Cherokee County woman was found shot to death in her vehicle Tuesday morning on the west side of Adair County.

The single shot to the chest is believed to have been self-inflicted, investigators said.

Undersheriff Jason Chennault identified the victim as Annette Nofire, who was reported missing earlier Tuesday by her husband, Sherman Nofire.

The husband filed a missing person report with Sheriff’s Sgt. Tommy Moore. Chennault said Sherman described his wife as being depressed.

Sheriff’s deputies looked for Annette and her vehicle, but without luck. She was also entered in the NCIC (National Crime Information Center) computer as a missing/endangered person. Area law enforcement agencies were asked to help look for her.

Chennault said the woman was found dead in her vehicle in the Wauhillau-Bidding Creek area around 8:30 a.m. Witnesses told investigators they heard a single gunshot around 4:30 or 5 a.m.

She was shot once in the chest. A handgun was found in the truck.

The body was sent to the state medical examiner’s office, but all indications are that the death was a suicide, he said.

Chennault is working the death investigation, along with Adair County Sheriff Austin Young and ACSO Sgt. Gary Quick.
