Body Found in Car Outside Springdale Hospital

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- A body was found in a car outside a Springdale hospital on Wednesday morning, police say. 

The unnamed female was found at 11:10 a.m. outside Northwest Medical Center, according to the Springdale Police Department. 

Authorities said the body was found in a black Mazda 6 car in the southwest parking lot. There weren't any obvious signs of trauma. The body was found in the driver's seat with the seatbelt still buckled. 

Police said they believe the body and car have been there for some time. 

"The body had been there for quite some time, unknown exactly the time period, but the decomp on the body proved to be that it was hard to determine the race of the body at this time," said Lt. Jeff Taylor with the Springdale Police Department.

The identity of the body is unknown at this time, and it has been sent to the Arkansas State Crime Lab for an autopsy.
