A woman’s body was found Wednesday inside a submerged car in St. Clair Shores, authorities said.

Police and fire personnel found a vehicle in the water behind 200 Shore Club Drive about 3 p.m. Wednesday.

There they found the sunken car “resting between the sea wall and a vacant boat well,” police said in a statement.

Investigators determined the vehicle had been underwater for several days.

Inside was the body of a white woman police identified as a Clinton Township resident in her early 20s.

An autopsy is expected to be conducted.

Other information was not released Wednesday. The investigation is ongoing, police said.
