DILWORTH—Police have received positive identification of a body found in a car outside Walmart here in late May, but haven't been able to find any family members to notify.

They're asking the public's help in trying to make that connection.

Dilworth Police Chief Ty Sharpe said the body was that of 56-year-old Anthony Sabal, no known address. The body was ID'd by the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's office through fingerprints.

Sharpe said according to the death certificate, there was no trauma to Sabal's body and he died from a cardiovascular event.

A tow-truck driver found the body in a car in the employee parking area of the Dilworth Walmart the morning of Wednesday, May 31.

The towing company was called because it was believed the car had been abandoned.

While hooking up the car, the tow-truck driver saw the body inside covered with a blanket.

Sharpe said anyone familiar with Anthony Sabal or who knows any of his family members or friends should call Dilworth police investigator Hunter Rawson at (218) 287-2666.
