Burned McLean Co. Body Identified

The McLean County Coroner says a woman whose burning body was found in a field set herself on fire.

Beth Kimmerling says the remains found in Shirley likely belonged to a missing 26-year-old Bloomington woman. Investigators believe the woman doused herself with an accelerant. Her body was still on fire when rescuers discovered it Sunday.

Kimmerling says the woman died of thermal burns and no foul play is suspected.
