COLUMBIA HEIGHTS, Minn. - Investigators are moving to positively identify the body of a teenager found inside a car that had been towed to an impound lot in Columbia Heights.
The body was discovered Thursday at the lot, located on the 3800 block of Central Avenue Northeast in the city of Columbia Heights. The vehicle had been towed to that location from an apartment complex in Brooklyn Park.
Mangers of the complex had contracted with a private towing company to move unauthorized vehicles and the tow driver did not see a body in the vehicle at the time. The vehicle in question was towed out of Brooklyn Park on February 13th.
Authorities say the body is believed to be an 18 year old female from St. Paul, but at this point the deceased has not been positively identified.
