WINONA, Minn. (WXOW) - A group of people who rented a recreational vehicle in Anoka County made a startling discovery when they stopped in Winona to investigate a foul odor.

Winona Police said the group rented the RV from a private party in Anoka Thursday. Authorities say they eventually pulled off the freeway in Winona around 10:00 p.m. to find the source of the smell and discovered a body lodged in a compartment of the RV that was accessible only from the outside.

Police took the body to the Mayo Clinic for an autopsy and identification.

The case is being investigated by Winona Police, Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, and the Anoka County Sheriff's Office.
