Fire Department rescue crews responding to the 5:30 a.m. call from Arundel Mills mall security officers found an African-American woman who appeared to be in her early 20s in the vehicle near 7009 Arundel Mills Circle and determined she was dead, police said. Police said they saw no obvious signs of foul play.
Police said they were not releasing the woman's name because next of kin have not been notified yet. The body has been taken to the state medical examiner's office, they said.
