LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The woman found dead in the trunk of a burned out car has been identified. According to Jefferson County deputy coroner Sam Weakley, the body was that of Whitney McCabe.

Weakley said McCabe, 33, died from injuries she suffered in an assault.

McCabe's body was found early on October 18 after Louisville firefighters had extinguished the car fire in the 1800 block of Greenwood Avenue.

Louisville Metro Police have classified McCabe's death as a homicide. Officer Carey Klain, a LMPD spokesperson, said the investigation is ongoing.
