WEST MELBOURNE, Fla. (AP) — Police are investigating after a woman’s body was found in a Wal-Mart parking lot inside a van that may have sat there unnoticed for several weeks.
Local news organizations report that authorities say the body was discovered by a worker Wednesday afternoon in a Dodge Grand Caravan at the West Melbourne store.
Police say the van was parked near the store’s garden center and had a weathered, temporary tag, possibly from Wisconsin.
West Melbourne police spokesman Capt. Richard Cordeau says surveillance video shows a vehicle pull in over a month ago in the same general area.
The woman’s identity has not been released. The medical examiner’s office will determine if foul play or some other issue played a role in her death.
