Family and friends confirmed Saturday that a body found in a towed car is that of a missing St. Paul teen, news sources report.
The Pioneer Press reports that according to authorities, the body of the teen, Brittany Clardy, was found in a car at an impound lot in Columbia Heights. Her body was reportedly concealed in the car when it was towed from an apartment complex on Feb. 13.
According to an article by the Star Tribune, Clardy's family reported her missing on Feb. 11 after she left her St. Paul home to go to the store and never returned. Her family says that it was unusual for the teen to leave home and not return without telling them and that she did not answer any of their phone calls.
The Star Tribune reports that friends and family have confirmed the discovered body to be Clardy's, but officials have not yet confirmed it. There is no information currently available regarding the cause of the teen's disappearance and death.
