Boulder Coroner: Teen from Lompoc found dead in flooding

The Boulder County Coroners Office has confirmed the identity of a local woman who died in massive floods in Colorado.

19-year-old Wiyanna Nelson was found dead on Linden Road in Colorado, on Friday, September 13th. The cause of her death is still under investigation. Her family moved from Lompoc to Colorado a few years ago.

The coroner says the body of 19-year-old Wesley Quinlan was also found with Nelson.

The Denver Post interviewed Nelson's mother, Jennifer. She told the newspaper "'She (Wiyanna) went out of the car, and the water came and got her,' Jennifer Nelson said, recounting the surviving friends' story of the night her daughter died."
