A decomposed body found Aug. 20 along Back Creek in western Berkeley County, W.Va., was identified as Debra Ann Fielder, a 49-year-old Berkeley County resident last seen alive nine days earlier in Bunker Hill, West Virginia State Police announced Friday.
The body was found by two people fishing in the creek near the intersection of Buck Hill Road and Tuscarora Pike.
Authorities determined she was stabbed multiple times.
Fielder's ex-husband, attorney Stephen R. Fielder of Bunker Hill, said Friday he was questioned by police about her death.
"I've been contacted by the police and it's better that I don't say anything," said Fielder at his home and office at 9280 Winchester Ave.
"Put me down for an official no comment," he said.
Berkeley County Prosecuting Attorney Pamela Games-Neely declined to say whether police had questioned Fielder or whether he was a suspect.
She indicated no arrest warrants had been issued.
