Body Found Inside Car Left Outside Busy Store For Weeks

(AP) — Investigators say the body of a young woman reported missing three months was found inside a car that had been parked outside a busy Northern California store for weeks.

KSBW-TV reports that 22-year-old Lauren Jessie Moss was found dead inside her car in a Walmart store in Salinas last week.

She was last seen alive in Seaside on Nov. 13; the same day she left a rehab center.

Salinas police officers said Moss' death was likely a suicide.

Police say Moss's car had dark-tinted windows and a sunshade over the dashboard making it hard to spot anyone inside. Walmart's security cameras only went back to December and footage shows the car in the same parking spot at that time.

A Walmart spokesman says they do not have personnel patrolling overnight, but they do have 24-hour surveillance cameras.
