MORRILL — Authorities say a body firefighters found in a burned vehicle in western Nebraska was that of a 17-year-old girl.
The Scotts Bluff County Sheriff's Office said in a news release Monday evening that the girl has been identified as Lilyanna Martin, who lived in Morrill. Firefighters discovered the body after extinguishing the vehicle fire in a field Friday night about 3 miles south of Morrill.
The office says there's no evidence that any crime was involved in the girl's death.
