In death news reports erased her identity and deadnamed her - only her Facebook profile really shows who she was.

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Blue County Sheriff’s office says they have identified the body found last week in a wooded area near Mankato as 23-year-old [deadname] Zephier.

A hunter found [her] remains last Thursday near Highway 83. The sheriff’s office says Zephier, who was from Minneapolis, was last seen leaving the Blue Earth County Jail on August 27 after [she] had been arrested by Lake Crystal police for shoplifting.

Investigators say [she] was brought to the jail because officers saw [she] had a warrant out for [her] arrest, but [she] was released after it was determined [she] could not be extradited.

Zephier left the jail on foot that day at about 3 p.m., wearing a gray sweatshirt, gray sweatpants and black shoes.

Zephier’s cause of death is still under investigation. Anyone with information on this case is urged to call the sheriff’s office at 507-304-4863.
