Farmington, Mo (KSDK) -- The wife of a U.S. Marine who has been serving in Afghanistan was found dead in California this week, and according to the Daily Journal, Brittany Killgore, 22, once lived in Missouri and has family who lives in the Show-Me-State.

Brittany Killgore's father lives in Rolla and according to the Daily Journal, her grandparents live in Farmington.

Killgore's body was found near a Southern California Lake.

She went missing days after filing for divorce from her husband, who is a Marine deployed to Afghanistan.  Authorities said he is not a suspect.

Active-duty Marine Louis Perez, 45, is believed to be the last person seen with Killgore and was arrested on unrelated charges.

Authorities also arrested Jessica Lynn Lopez, 25, on suspicion of murder.  She is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday.
