PHOENIX, Md. (AP) — Authorities are identifying a woman found dead in a burned car in rural Baltimore County on Thanksgiving.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner identified the woman as Carolyn Davidson Von-Schnell, 51, of Phoenix.

Baltimore County police say Von-Schnell left her home in the 1300-block of Phoenix Road on Nov. 23 to go shopping in Cockeysville, but never returned. Police were not able to find her that night, but searchers in a police helicopter spotted a burned car the next morning. Police say her car went across the front yard, down a slope and crashed into several trees before bursting into flames, trapping Von-Schnell in the car.

The medical examiner has not yet determined cause and manner of death. Police are investigating the case as a suspicious death.
