Human remains found inside a torched car in Auburn last weekend have been identified as 39-year-old Denise Grigsby, according to the King County Medical Examiner’s Office.

The cause of death for the Kent woman was listed as a skull fracture and cerebral contusions.

King County sheriff’s investigators have not identified suspects in Grigsby’s death or said how she came to be in the vehicle.

A neighbor called 911 early Sunday morning to report a fire. After responding firefighters doused flames from a Toyota Camry, the burned human remains were found in the trunk.
