Lakeview: Police launch investigation after woman’s found dead in parked car

Police are conducting a death investigation after a woman was found dead inside a car parked in Lakeview, police said. A man called 911 after noticing an unresponsive person inside a gold-colored Cadillac on the 3000 block of North Clifton shortly after 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Fire department personnel pronounced the woman dead based on conditions inside the vehicle, according to a source. Police believe the 41-year-old had been in the car for a matter of days. According to initial information from the scene, the vehicle is registered to a man who has an address in the South Shore neighborhood.

A witness at the scene said investigators opened the vehicle’s trunk around 8:30 p.m. and he saw them remove a firearm from the trunk, but police have not confirmed this information.

The body, which was in the vehicle’s passenger seat with all of the doors locked, appeared to have “some injury to her neck area,” according to a CPD statement.

Area Three detectives are investigating.
