Woman found dead in Grover Beach parking lot

Grover Beach police are investigating the death of a 50-year-old woman whose body was found Saturday afternoon in some shrubbery next to a shopping center parking lot in the 100 block of South 16th Street.

Three passersby noticed the woman and called police at 4:08 p.m., who arrived on scene and determined that she was deceased, Cmdr. John Peters said. No foul play is suspected, he said.

The woman is a Grover Beach resident, but her name is being withheld until her family is notified, Peters said. An autopsy is planned for Thursday.
