POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) -

Someone who refused to reveal her name to Poplar Bluff police was identified late Monday as a woman born in Bluff, but currently living in Randolph County, Illinois.

Poplar Bluff police officer James Henry said the woman's name is Kimberly Weinhoffer.  Henry said Weinhoffer's identity was confirmed when her fingerprints matched prints on file with the FBI.  

An anonymous caller also recognized Weinhoffer in a kfvs12.com web story.  According to the caller, Weinhoffer, 46, suffered from "multiple mental conditions."

Henry eventually contacted Weinhoffer's mother, who believed Weinhoffer had driven to Bluff.  However, she was not sure how or why Weinhoffer ended up at a used car lot on U.S. Highway 67 Monday morning.

Police Chief Danny Whiteley said Weinhoffer was arrested for trespassing at the car lot around 10 a.m. Monday, just after his office received a call from the owner.  The owner told police the woman was acting peculiar and appeared disoriented.

Whiteley called KFVS12 when Weinhoffer refused to reveal her identity.  "She hasn't been combative," Whiteley said.  "She's just been quoting Bible verses and refuses to tell us who she is."

Weinhoffer remained in the Butler County Jail Monday night.
