Two children were in the vehicle in which a 40 year old South Dakota was found dead in on December 13.
Scott White with the Missouri State Highway Patrol says Melissa Peskey’s children, ages 5 and 11, were in the car when troopers found it crashed near mile marker 96 on Interstate 70.
White said the children were uninjured.
An autopsy performed on Monday showed Peskey had died from a gunshot that was fired from outside the vehicle.
No suspect information has been released at this time. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
