CINCINNATI (AP) — Investigators are trying to find out how a 29-year-old southwest Ohio woman ended up dead in an abandoned car that was involved in a crash.
The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office said Jena Higgins was reported missing Sunday. Her body was found Monday in a car abandoned after a crash in Whitewater Township near Cincinnati.
Alcohol or drugs are believed to be a factor in the single-vehicle crash. The driver lost control and hit two trees and a utility pole. Higgins was a passenger in the car.
The owner of the diner where Higgins worked tells The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/U6OFiW ) that she was the mother of four young boys.
The driver hasn't been found.
