A woman who police said had left her home in Cockeysville to visit a store on Thanksgiving Eve and was found dead in her burning car the next morning has been identified as 51-year-old Carolyn Davidson Von-Schnell.
A cause of death has not been determined, but Baltimore County police have said the death appears accidental.
Police said that her Toyota Camry had apparently gone off the road, over a hill and hit several trees in the 1300 block of Phoenix Road. Van-Schnell was found by police, who spotted the car from a helicopter, inside the burning vehicle after relatives called to report her missing from her house in the same block.
Police say the investigation remains open.
