BLOOMFIELD | The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation and other authorities are investigating the events surrounding the discovery of remains of a Northwood woman found in her car in rural Davis County late last month.
The human remains, identified as the body of 63-year-old Sharon Kay Moritz, were found in the area of 27772 Vetch Avenue in Pulaski, just after 10:30 a.m. on Jan. 27, according to an Iowa Department of Public Safety press release.
Moritz, who had family in the Davis County area, was found in a 2006 white Chevrolet four-door Impala. According to the release, local deputies responded to a 911 call around 10:30 about a burned out car in rural Davis County, which was found by a local farmer.
Moritz's remains were transported to the Office of the State Medical Examiner in Ankeny.
"The autopsy will be conducted this week and results from the autopsy will be released at a later date," the press release stated. The full autopsy results won't be completed for about four to six weeks.
Currently, the Davis County Sheriff's office, Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, State Fire Marshall's office, Iowa Department of Transportation, Davis County Attorney and the Office of State Medical Examiner are investigating the case.
Those departments are asking for the public's help in this investigation. Anyone with information can contact the Davis County Law Enforcement Center at 641-664-2385.
