Forty-one-year-old Sandy Christiansen, some may know her as Sandy Drown, had been living in Mary Esther for the past year, but she spent most of her life in Panama City.
Her three daughters ages 21, 17, and 9 were all born and raised in Panama City. Christiansen's daughter Amanda tells Newschannel Seven neighbors saw the car on fire in the victim's driveway at 423-D Little John Road just before 5 a.m. Sunday morning.
Dental records will be used to confirm her identity. Authorities have not released the cause of the fire although they suspect Christianson fell asleep while sitting in the car and dropped a cigarette.
The fire spread and another car in the driveway caught fire and was destroyed.
