BERNIE, Mo. — Authorities are investigating after the body of a southeast Missouri woman was found in the trunk of her car.

The Delta Dunklin Democrat reports that an autopsy performed last week on 38-year-old Holly Kirkman wasn’t conclusive. Stoddard County Coroner Kenny Pope says authorities will have to wait for toxicology results to determine how she died.

She went missing on Nov. 8. Her body was found days later in the closed trunk of her car at the family home in the small town of Bernie.
