Police on Tuesday were investigating the death of a woman whose body was found in a car parked outside a grocery store in West Covina.
The discovery was made around 12 p.m. on Tuesday in the parking lot of a Stater Bros. on North Azusa Avenue, according to the West Covina Police Department.
The woman’s body was found in the backseat of a gray Volkswagen, said police Sgt. Brian Daniels. On the front passenger seat, investigators found a tan leather purse.
It was not clear how long the vehicle had been sitting in the parking lot.
The vehicle appeared to have an Uber sticker and tag, but the ride-sharing service would not confirm or deny whether the car or its driver was registered with the company.
No other information was released.
