CHILTON COUNTY, AL (WSFA) – The body of a woman was found in a burnt-out camper after a passerby saw a fire and notified authorities. 

A passerby on Chilton County Road 454 noticed a fire around noon. When authorities arrived the camper was completely destroyed. 

Chilton County Sheriff Kevin Davis said the camper had been the home of Jonnie Knueptel, 69, for about a year. She was the only resident. 

An autopsy has yet to be done to determine if Knueptel died as a result of the fire or if there were other causes involved. 

Gap of the Mountain, East Chilton and Clanton Fire Departments responded to the scene.
