SALINAS, California (WTNH)– A woman’s dead body was in a Walmart parking lot for three months before anyone noticed.

The New York Daily News reports that the body of 22-year-old Lauren Jessie Moss was found inside her Volkswagen Jetta that was sitting in a Salinas, California Walmart parking lot for three months. Moss was first reported missing after leaving a rehab center back in November.

On February 3rd, a Walmart employee approached the car after she noticed it was in the parking lot for several weeks. Police say the car had dark windows and was covered with a sunshade over the dashboard, making it difficult for anyone to notice the corpse.

Moss’s sister said that Moss had left a suicide note and a drug needle was found in the car. However, the cause of death has not been been determined and an autopsy will be performed.
