BLOOMFIELD, Iowa (AP) — Authorities have identified human remains found in a burned-out car in southeast Iowa.

The Iowa Department of Public Safety said Wednesday the remains found Saturday were of 63-year-old Sharon Kay Moritz, of Northwood.

A farmer found the burned-out car in Davis County, southeast of the small community of Pulaski. Deputies responded and found the human remains inside.

The car was a 2006 white Chevrolet Impala that was registered to Moritz.

Investigators say Moritz has family in the Davis County area.

Results of an autopsy by the Office of the State Medical Examiner will be completed in four to six week.
