MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Authorities are investigating after a woman’s body was found in a car submerged in a lake in Roseville Sunday afternoon.
The Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office was called at about 1 p.m. Sunday after a citizen reported seeing a vehicle under the ice on Lake Josephine in Roseville. When officers arrived, the vehicle was located about 75 feet from the boat launch at the lake.
The Ramsey County Water Patrol and Dive team was called to the scene and discovered the body of an adult female in the car. The vehicle’s description matched one that was reported missing earlier in the week and belonging to a woman identified as 64-year-old Judi O. of Shoreview. She’s a vulnerable adult who hasn’t been seen since last Sunday.
The woman’s body was taken to the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office for a positive identification and a cause of death.
