Police found a body inside a car Friday after receiving calls about a foul odor by a CVS store in National City.
A 40-year-old dead woman was located inside a car, said National City Police Sgt. Chris Cameon. After employees reported the foul smell, officers investigated the scene.
They made the grisly discovery by the CVS store at East Plaza Boulevard and L Avenue around 10:25 a.m.
Her body may have been left in the vehicle for a few days, said Cameon. The San Diego County Medical Examiner will conduct an autopsy.
This death is not being investigated as a homicide, said Cameon. Her cause of death will be apparent after the autopsy is completed.
No further information was immediately available.
