Speeding California driver stopped in Rapid City had dead mother in SUV

Roughly half of them remain unsolved.

The woman found dead in an SUV after a high-speed chase has been identified as the mother of the driver, who is a Santa Cruz man. Autopsy results are pending.

It's unknown how Walsh died and if her son killed her.

They identified her as Michelle Nanette Walsh, 58, but her cause of death is still under investigation, Palm Springs police Sgt. William Hutchinson said.

Lommen tried to flee on foot in the below-zero weather but was nabbed and arrested for drunk driving and eluding officers.

Michelle Nanette Walsh, 58, was found dead January 1, wrapped in a blanket in the back seat of a vehicle driven by Tosten David Walsh Lommen, according to a news release from the South Dakota attorney general.

Tosten David Walsh Lommen, 30, was allegedly spotted traveling at speeds over 100 miles per hour on eastbound Interstate Highway 90 by South Dakota Highway Patrol troopers in the vicinity of Spearfish at 11:55 a.m. local time.

Lommen continued driving east at speeds of up to 118 miles per hour before law enforcement officers eventually used a spike strip to disable his vehicle.

Trooper Jeremy Biegert of the Pennington County Sheriff's Department said the suspect had an alcohol stench and had a blood alcohol level of 0.142, well above the legal limit. His bond has been set at $2.5 million.
