Mummified Body Found In Front Seat Of Car

A very bizarre story out of California.

Police found a mummified body under a coat in the front seat of an illegally parked car.

The driver admits she's had the corpse in her car for months, possibly since January.

Police describe the driver as a 57 year old homeless woman who said the car is her father's.

She said she has sinus issues and couldn't smell the decomposing body.

Neighbors in the area where the body was found say they are still rattled by the discovery.

The body was of a homeless woman the driver says she befriended last year and let sleep in her car.

She said she was afraid to call police when she died.

Authorities are still trying to identify the body.

No foul play is suspected.
