Missing woman found dead in backseat of her car after boyfriend drove it

UPDATE:
According to this link, Veronica was found in a black garbage bag under some clothes in the backseat of her car.

Veronica Witcher, 46, went missing from Lake City, Fla. on Jan. 30, 2015.  Her car was found by her family.  They made a missing person reports and then asked her boyfriend, Robert Allen, 57, to come get it and take it back to his house and park it.

Then on Saturday, Feb. 7, Allen called the police saying he discovered a body in the backseat of Veronica’s car.

Authorities arrived and took fingerprints from the body and then identified it as belonging to Veronica, reports WJAX TV.

Police are not sure if Veronicar’s body was in the car when it was driven or she ended up in the car at a later time.  There were a lot of clothing in the car, and it may have been possible that Allen did not see the  body in the car when he got in it an drove it to his home on Northwest Joland Way.

Witcher’s boyfriend is cooperating with the police and is not considered a suspect.

Authorities state they need to determine the cause of death before they move forward with the investigation.

“There’s a lot of factors that go into how rapidly a body is in decomposition. However, she was in advanced stages, so the medical examiner will give us a more complete picture of that,” said PIO Murray Smith.

The Columbia County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help and if they have any information to call them.

“We got a lot of questions and not a lot of answers,” Smith said.
