Bernalwood Press is reporting news of a woman's body found inside a minivan at the Mission District Safeway yesterday.
San Francisco police say because the case is not suspicious, the cops are not investigating at this time. The case has gone to the Medical Examiner. That information coincides with what Bernalwood is reporting. Here's what a neighbor told the blog:
I went to Safeway around 1 pm. I was driving in. and there were a ton of SFPD and SFFD cars/trucks that had just pulled into the parking lot. They went over to an older minivan that was parked on the right side (next to the taqueria), and the paramedics appeared to be attending to someone.
When I was checking out, I could see that there were still several cops/cars hanging out near the van, but all the fire department trucks and the ambulance were gone.
I asked the cashier what was going on. She said someone had died in their car. Apparently the woman was known to the Safeway staff; she went in often to eat samples and then would go into her van to sleep for a few hours. It is possible that the deceased was there for a full day.
Eventually, someone decided to call the cops and found the unfortunate scene. As I was leaving, they had it blocked off with crime scene tape.
The Medical Examiner has not yet identified the woman.
