ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A 39-year-old woman who had been living in her car was found dead inside the vehicle in the parking lot of an Anchorage shopping mall.
The body of Tammy Wise was found Thursday evening inside her Chevrolet Suburban, which was parked at the Northway Mall Kmart. Police said Wise had been staying in the car since she fled a reportedly abusive relationship.
A friend came to visit Wise and found her dead, police said.
Wise's body was taken to the State Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy. Police said she had suffered from pneumonia and her death appears to be due to natural causes.
There was no sign of foul play.
