B-C woman dies of apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound

     Baxter County authorities say no foul play is suspected in the death of a 53-year old woman whom they believe died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Deputies with the Baxter County Sheriff's Department responded to a call from a man just north of Midway Sunday afternoon that he had returned to the couple's home and found his wife in one of their vehicles on their property with a gunshot wound.
     The woman was seriously injured and she was transported by ambulance to Baxter Regional Medical Center and then airlifted to Cox Medical Center South in Springfield. Authorities were notified Monday morning that she had died.
     Authorities say they recovered a .38 caliber revolver in the car where the woman was found.
