There had been no formal reports of missing people - not from family or friends or neighbors - during the weeks, or even months, that police believe Lee Anne Pirus was dead in her Wisconsin home. She had been shot and killed weeks ago, police said. But the 50-year-old's body was not discovered until Friday, , after the beige, two-story home she shared with her husband went up in flames following what the authorities called a "hellacious explosion."
