CARSON CITY, Nev. (KOLO) - The Carson City Sheriff's Office says a woman who was found dead inside a vehicle of Highway 50 likely died of natural causes.

Deputies and detectives were called to the 5000 block of Hwy 50 East around noon on Tuesday, February 25, 2020 after a tow truck driver discovered the woman's body.

The sheriff's office said a business owner called the tow company to remove the vehicle believing it had been abandoned for a long period of time.

Detectives say the woman had been living in the vehicle, and said she was covered up in blankets and clothing making it hard to see her from the outside.

The sheriff's office said there appears to be no foul play.

The medical examiner will determine the cause of death. Her name will not be released until next of kin is notified.
