The King County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in the slaying of a 39-year-old woman who was found over the weekend inside a torched car.

Sheriff’s investigators have not identified any suspects in Denise Grigsby’s death. The Medical Examiner’s Office has ruled the Kent-area resident died of homicidal violence.

An Auburn resident called 911 early Sunday morning to report a fire in the area of Southeast328th Street and Southeast Auburn Black Diamond Road. After responding firefighters doused flames from a Toyota Camry, the burned human remains were found in the trunk.

Sheriff’s investigators will be processing the car for evidence today.
