Police don’t suspect foul play in death of woman whose body was found in vehicle Saturday morning

January 24, 2011, 10:47 a.m. Updated January 24, 2011, 5:11 p.m.


A Lawrence police spokesman said Monday morning that officers do not suspect foul play in the death of a 58-year-old woman whose body was found Saturday morning in a vehicle in the 800 block of Tennessee Street.

But results from an autopsy are pending, Sgt. Matt Sarna said.

“There appears to be nothing suspicious,” he said.

Police were called around 8:20 a.m. Saturday after a report of a body in a vehicle.

The vehicle was parked in the driveway of a residence in the alley behind Tennessee Street, but officers said the woman did not live at the home. Sarna said Monday the woman also did not own or have any other connection with the vehicle.

Police have not released the woman’s name.

It may have been anything. How about a medical issue that caused her to stop her car in an unfamiliar place? There must be something in human nature that makes us want it to be something that could never have happened to us. Sorry, folks, life isn't like that. Stuff DOES happen, even to people who have no fault in it.

My condolences to her friends and family, peace and strength to all.

May have been a homeless person known to the police whom they believe sought refuge in an unlocked car to escape the cold. So sad if lack of a warm shelter for the night contributed to her demise.

Okay ... sorry for the family, but the "official" statements are kind of inviting stupid responses on here .... "nothing suspicious", maybe so, but at least a little odd, given what details they've released.

I know, I know ... none of our business.
Warm thoughts to the family, puzzled looks for the police spokesperson.

Good for you hip_gma! These unintelligent and childish remarks that SOME feel the need to post when a family has been devastated make no sense probably not even to the poster!

somedude20 - i know the family. Just wait until you have a relative die suddenly and see how much comfort a comment like yours brings to you.

From the pictures it was parked outside, so unless the tailpipe was clogged, I doubt it.

I wonder if she was warming up the vehicle and was overcome by carbon monoxide.
