The Newton County Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate Sunday night’s train/pedestrian
fatality. Deputies responded to the Kansas City Southern Railroad tracks east of County Road
4181 in the Hartburg area where they found the body of 37-year old Amanda Lynn Burns, of
Orange, approximately 10 feet from the tracks. The conductor of the train says Burns was
jogging on the tracks and they sounded the horn with no response. An autopsy has been ordered.
