ARNOLD — Investigators of the death of a once-missing St. Louis-area woman found dead in her mother's car on a parking lot say they've arrested three people suspected of abandoning her body.
The body of 26-year-old Jessica Eberhardt of High Ridge was found early Tuesday in the passenger seat of the snow-covered car parked outside an Arnold urgent care center. She had been last seen eight days earlier.
Authorities say they don't suspect foul play, though a cause of death has not been revealed.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that abandonment of a corpse is a felony punishable by up to four years in prison.
The suspects were not immediately publicly identified, pending the filing of charges.
