Brown Mammal - Mink?

Seen killed on the roadside in eastern Hanover County, Virginia.

Today I drove past a brown mammal which had been killed on the highway. I am asking for help identifying it. The pictures are slightly gruesome, so don’t click if you are easily grossed out. This brown mammal was seen in eastern Hanover county, Virginia. This is the first one of these I’ve seen, in 30 years of living around here. I suspect it is either a Mink or a North American River Otter. If not one of those two, then what? Weasel? Ferret?

Elaine has responded on facebook that this is a mink, an feisty animal she remembers her father trapping in her youth.
