UPDATE: Car fire apparent suicide

A dead body was found in a burned-out car Sunday morning at the Milan Wildlife Area on Lovers Lane Road just inside the Erie County border.
Erie County Sheriff Paul Sigsworth said the body is that of a 33-year-old Norwalk woman who apparently committed suicide.
She hasn’t been seen in about a day, he added.
Sigsworth said investigators located a license plate in the debris, and learned the vehicle’s owner is 33-year-old Norwalk woman.
Sigsworth said while authorities believe the person, who has yet to be identified, committed suicide, Erie County Coroner Dr. Brian Baxter will rule on the official cause of death — a process Sigsworth said “will take some time.”
