PALMER, Alaska, July 29 (UPI) -- A traffic stop of an allegedly drunken driver in Palmer, Alaska, this weekend intensified after police found the body of a woman inside his car.
A spokeswoman for Alaska state police alleged that when officers searched 45-year-old Frank Adams' car after he was stopped on suspicion of drunken driving, an unidentified female body was found, the Anchorage Daily News said Sunday. Police spokeswoman Megan Peters said the grisly discovery was made after Adams allegedly attempted to flee from the officers.
Police had attempted to stop Adams after receiving a report he was seen stumbling out of a local establishment. Working in coordination with their Anchorage counterparts, Palmer police were eventually able to stop Adams' vehicle using spike strips.
The newspaper said investigators were awaiting autopsy results before moving forward in the matter.
