Mummified Body Found In Trunk Identified

Police say a disabled Georgetown woman might have been dead for two years before her body was discovered in the trunk of a car.

Police say the body of 31-year-old Penny Brown was found Friday in the trunk of a car that police had towed from St. Louis. The car, a 1998 black Chevy Malibu, is registered in the name of her brother, Timothy Brown.

Investigators are looking for Brown, 30, who is wanted for the knowing abuse or neglect of an adult and interstate flight to avoid prosecution. The FBI and the U.S. Marshals Service have joined the investigation.

Officials are still trying to figure out how Penny died.

Police think Timothy Brown may have tried to change his appearance to avoid being caught. They've issued a nationwide all points bulletin.
