FERTILE, Minn. (AP) — Authorities have identified the woman whose body was found in a burning car in western Minnesota last week.
Sixty-one-year-old Paulette Olson of rural Fertile was driving to work when her car got stuck in a snowbank on a county road.
Somehow her car caught on fire. Her body was found inside.
Norman County Sheriff Jeremy Thornton says a full autopsy is not complete, and Olson’s death remains under investigation. But he says it’s probably accidental.
