Police Identify Body Pulled from Mississippi

As covered in a previous blog entry, on Oct. 10, a body was found in a submerged car in the Mississippi River.

On Sunday afternoon, Police identified the body as Kathleen May Spangenberg, 60, of St. Paul, the Pioneer Press reported.

Police were able to identify Spangenberg through DNA, as well as personal papers and a license plate, police spokesman Peter Panos said.

The cause of death is still unknown, but it appears the victim drove into the river as either an accident or suicide, Panos said.

Spangenberg was not close to her family and it was common for her to go years within speaking to them, Panos said.
