Alejandra was last seen by her family on October 5, 2013.

The body was found along a stretch of North Road — six-tenths of a mile south of County Trunk Highway CW.

The man who discovered the body didn’t want to talk with FOX6 News on camera, but says he spotted two crows flying over the area from his car. When he walked into the field, he saw the body. He says there was no clothing on the body except for sandals. He says the body looked like it had been there for awhile.

Friends of Guzman-Flores say the news of her death comes as a complete surprise.

"I was in shock when I heard all this. I mean, I wonder what really happened to her -- and how they found her, that's strange," a friend named "Carmen" told FOX6 News.

Carmen is a childhood friend of Guzman-Flores. She and other long-time friends say they weren't aware Guzman-Flores was missing.

Carmen says she last saw Guzman-Flores this past summer.

"After that, I didn't see her anymore," Carmen said.

Carmen says learning the body is that of Guzman-Flores is upsetting.

"I mean, I was sad. It was sad because she's so young and they don't know what happened to her," Carmen said.

Milwaukee police say Guzman-Flores' family had not reported her missing, but back in 2009, they reported her missing for four days.

FOX6 News spoke briefly with the family on Monday. They said only that they are grieving and are not ready to speak out.

If anyone has information regarding Guzman-Flores' death or had contact with her on or around October 5, 2013, you're strongly urged to call Jefferson County Sheriff's Office Detective Tim Behselich at 920-674-7314.

    Perhaps she has a habit of disappearing for long periods of time and the family and her may not be close, as sad as that is but in certain families that is the case

    Did anyone even report Alejandra Guzman-Flores missing? How else would the press/public know she was missing to report on it? I wasn’t able to find any information on her other than her body being found.

    The family was under the impression she had move to California with her lover. It was something her father didn’t approve of so they did not talk. NOTHING TO DO WITH BEEN ILLEGAL OR NOT!

    Really Dave. Because of a name you ASSUME that it has to do with legal status. I was unaware that people from Puerto Rico needed permission to be here.

    You know what, it is disgusting that you would make a comment like that at a time like this. This poor young girl is lost forever. Show her and her family respect at a time like this!

    she was my cousin , & my uncle DID report her missing right when we had no clue where she was . Yeah , we had understood she was leaving to California & some people are being “dumb” thinking this had something to do with being illegal ! who would care about that now that she’s gone !

    My family owns farmland in Ixonia. Not the same farm where they found Ms. Guzman-Flores (at least, I do not think so…I have not heard anything yet), but it IS very desolate out there. You need a truck or ATV to get around on most of the property once you get past the “big house” and yard. During the winter, no one really ventures out into the cornfields…no reason to. Cornfields are flat and boring. No one really goes out there until spring. So, it is entirely possible that her remains were there for several months and no one knew. That is believable. Now the question is, what was she doing out there if she was from Milwaukee? That is a strange place to end up. Unless you actually know the area, it is basically the middle of nowhere and a tiny afterthought on the map. You have to know how to drive around very rural streets and not get lost (almost impossible, unless you are from there and/or familiar with the area). Start looking at people who are from the area (Oconomowoc, Okauchee, Watertown, Nashota, Pewaukee, ect…). This location is not random. The person who did this is familiar with the area and the fact that no one is going to find this woman’s remains until months later. My guess is that her body was left there during the winter (not buried = ground was frozen) plus heavy snowfall this winter….it HAD TO be someone who knew she would not be found for several months or otherwise they would not have left the remains exposed. This points directly to someone who has some connection to the area.
    My condolences to her friends and family. I hope they catch her assailant. If I can get any info from my family who owns land in Ixonia I will pass the news on to the proper authorities.
