A missing Texas mother who was last seen rushing to work nearly three weeks ago has been found dead inside her car in a shopping mall parking lot, police said Monday.
Christina Lee Powell’s body was discovered Saturday night after a security guard noticed a “foul odor” coming from the vehicle parked outside the Huebner Oaks Center in San Antonio.
The security guard approached the 39-year-old’s black 2020 Nissan Rogue after realizing the car had been parked in the same spot outside the mall for about a week, police said.
“He looked inside the vehicle and observed a body in the front passenger side seat and called 911,” police said.
Police said there was no apparent trauma to Powell’s body, but a medical examiner was carrying out an autopsy to determine her official cause of death.
It wasn’t immediately clear when Powell died.
Her purse and ID were found inside the car and used to positively identify her, cops said.
