THEILMAN — A body has been found inside a camper at a campground in rural Wabasha County.

According to media reports, a 51-year-old female was found deceased by Wabasha County Sheriff's Office around 5 p.m. Saturday at Whippoorwill Campground , which is located near the Zumbro River. The woman hasn't yet been identified by authorities, who continue to investigate.

Wabasha County Sheriff Rodney Bartsh was not immediately available for comment, but it's not believed to be a suspicious death, according to media reports. It's expected that the woman will be identified by name after the autopsy is completed.

Authorities discovered the body while performing a wellness check after being informed no one had heard from the woman for days.
