Police discovered a body inside an SUV parked at the Meijer in Grand Ledge.

Officers made the discovery around 8:20pm Thursday at the Meijer located on East Saginaw Highway.

The victim has not been publicly identified, but police say she's a 69-year-old Dimondale woman. She was found in the backseat, and had been dead in the vehicle for about 2 weeks. There were no signs of foul play. Her family had reported her as missing.

News 10 talked with Meijer employees who said employees were out getting shopping carts and discovered something dripping out of the SUV. Those workers then went and told management at the Meijer who then immediately called police.

Emergency crews could also be seen spraying down the SUV and pavement with water before the vehicle was towed away.
