Body found in trunk after traffic check in Twin Cities

Orono, MN (KROC-AM News) – Police in a western suburb of Twin Cities say two people were arrested after a body was found in the vehicle.

A news release from the Orono Police Department says the investigation began shortly after 7 a.m. Friday after officers received a call about a suspicious vehicle. The caller reported that the silver car was rolling on a rim and the rear window of the vehicle had been smashed.

Just minutes after receiving the call, Orono police located the car and pulled it over. The press release says an officer noticed blood inside the vehicle while speaking with the female driver, which led to the discovery of a body in the trunk.

Orono police say it is an active investigation and several scenes are being processed, but they also say there is no risk to the public.
