DIGHTON, Mass. (AP) - The Bristol District Attorney’s Office says a Massachusetts woman found dead beside her car earlier this month was not pregnant.

The Taunton Daily Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1OgOPxa ) officials confirmed Tuesday that a medical examination of the partially burned remains of 47-year-old Tracey Hunter-Montinat revealed she was in fact not pregnant, though she had claimed to be prior to her death.

Police discovered Hunter-Montinat’s charred body on Nov. 18 near her car, which was located in a wooded area behind a gated community in Dighton.

A spokesman for the district attorney, Gregg Miliote, says Hunter-Montinat died of smoke inhalation after her vehicle was engulfed in flames.

Hunter-Montinat had recently been married but was estranged from her husband, who police say is not a suspect in her death.
