(SD)-SUV Body That Of Driver's Mother

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota authorities say the body found in the rear of an SUV Monday after a high-speed chase from Spearfish to Rapid City was the mother of the driver, who is in custody on a variety of charges.

     Attorney General Marty Jackley says South Dakota and California authorities are working together on the death investigation for 58-year old Michelle Walsh of California. An autopsy was conducted, but the results are pending.

    Walsh's son, 30-year-old Tosten Walsh Lommen - also of California, is being held on $2.5-million dollars bail for charges that include aggravated eluding and drunken driving.
     The chase that eventually led to Lommen's arrest began when a South Dakota Highway Patrol trooper spotted him driving over 100 mph on I-90.

     The pursuit ended when spike strips flattened the tires of Lommen's SUV and he ran off the pavement, coming to rest in a ditch. Lommen was arrested trying to run away and officers searching his SUV discovered Walsh's body wrapped in a blanket.
