Le Sueur County Sheriff and Montgomery Police on scene where a deceased woman was found in her vehicle late Thursday afternoon.

Diana Turek, age 65 of Montgomery, was found deceased in her vehicle in front of Edel’s Meat Market at 116 1st Street North in Montgomery Thursday, Dec. 21.

A female customer arriving at the meat market noticed Turek in the vehicle and knocked on the window but got no response. She made a call to 911 at about 3:22 p.m.

Montgomery Police Officer Sladek was dispatched, arrived on scene and advised dispatch to send Montgomery Area EMS. Officer Sladek found Turek in her vehicle. He checked for vital signs and advised dispatch to cancel EMS as she was deceased.

Officer Sladek spoke with the owner of the meat market, who was familiar with the deceased. The owner said Turek was a regular customer and had been in that day at 11:00 a.m. to make a purchase. Officer Sladek was able to find the receipt in the deceased woman’s purse to confirm that.

Le Sueur County Sheriff Deputy Holm then arrived on scene to conduct a death investigation. Deputy Holm spoke with the medical examiner who advised that the deceased could be released to the funeral home.
