On November 17 at approximately 2:40 p.m., a Pine County deputy, on patrol in Bremen Township, located a body in a drainage ditch along Maple Road. Investigators responded and recovered the body of an adult female. The body was transported to the Midwest Medical Examiner's Office for autopsy and identification.

The Midwest Medical Examiner's Office positively identified the deceased as Maria Liza Mofti, age 53, of Minneapolis. Mofti had been signed as a missing person on November 16 with the Pine County Sheriff's Office.
