Officials identify mummified remains in Michigan

PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) — Authorities have confirmed that the mummified remains of a woman found in a suburban Detroit garage in March are those of the woman who lived alone at the home.

The Detroit Free Press reports (http://on.freep.com/1nSnfJg ) that authorities this week notified Pia Farrenkopf's relatives that she has been positively identified using DNA testing. Oakland County Deputy Medical Examiner Dr. Bernardino Pacris says the cause and manner of death cannot be determined.

Investigators said in March that they believed the remains were those of Farrenkopf. The self-employed financial trouble-shooter would have turned 50 this year.

The remains were found in the rear seat of Farrenkopf's Jeep in her garage in Pontiac. She may have been dead for more than five years. There is no evidence of foul play.
