ST. LOUIS • A woman found dead last weekend at a curb near St. Louis University Hospital has been identified as Christina A. Dobbelare, 32, of Bloomsdale, Mo., in Ste. Genevieve County.
Dobbelare was found about 11:45 p.m. Sunday in the 3600 block of Rutger Street with no signs of trauma on her body, police said. Paramedics took her to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Her family reported her missing earlier this month and had not heard from her though she was thought to be in the St. Louis area. A picture of a flower tattoo on Dobbelare's body released by police on Wednesday helped the family identify her.
Authorities were waiting for toxicology test results before concluding how she died.
