Body discovered in camper in Chilton County

CLANTON, AL (WBRC) - Authorities in central Alabama are trying to determine the cause of death of a woman whose body was found in a burned camper.

Chilton County Sheriff Kevin Davis on Friday told FOX6 News the body of Jonnie Knueptel, 69, was discovered inside a camper which caught fire around noon Thursday just off County Road 454 near Airport Road in the Refuge community.

Sheriff Davis said Friday an autopsy to determine the cause of death was not yet finished and the Alabama Fire Marshal was still trying to determine how the fire started.

A passerby saw the fire and called authorities. The camper was destroyed in the blaze.

Sheriff Davis said the woman had lived alone in the camper for about a year at that location.
