no
Notes:
Some possibility this is a Trachemys scripta elegans, they have been documented in the adjacent county (not to mention that they pop up in many places as released or escaped pets), but red line on head very thin, and some Chrysemys I encountered in Eastern Iowa have had thin red lines that extended well onto head.
