Deceased Woman Left in Vehicle to be Found 

Seattle Police responded to a report of a deceased woman in a vehicle in the Laurelhurst neighborhood early Tuesday morning.  

Police arrived just after 2:00 a.m. in the 4500 block of 40th Avenue Northeast and found the woman wrapped in a blanket, inside a black SUV in the emergency drop zone of a hospital.   

Seattle Fire Department personnel were on scene and confirmed the woman had died.  

It appears the 39-year-old female may have overdosed on narcotics; however, the King County Medical Examiner’s Officer will confirm manner and cause of death.
