SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials have identified a woman found dead inside a cooler in a stolen car in Whittier as a 19-year-old Huntington Beach resident.

The Orange County Register reports (https://bit.ly/1IzDpyu ) that Dawn McEveety was found Sunday after sheriff’s deputies responded to a call about an abandoned vehicle. When deputies went to investigate they smelled a “strong odor” coming from the 1991 Toyota Celia.

Officials say the cause of death appears to be a gunshot wound. Investigators believe McEveety was killed elsewhere and then brought to the Whittier location.
