Body of woman discovered in vehicle at Walmart

Somerset —  

According to Pulaski County Coroner Chuck Godbey, a 42-year-old woman was found dead in her vehicle in the parking lot of the local Walmart store Saturday afternoon.

Emergency responders found the vehicle at the scene around 3 p.m., with the woman inside, slumped over and deceased.

Godbey confirmed her to be Carolyn Haley. 42, of Bronston. He added that she’d actually had several licenses, including one from Arizona, so she hadn’t lived in this area all her life apparently.

Godbey said that foul play does not appear to be a factor; however, coroners were unable to immediately determine a cause of death. As such, Haley’s body was sent to the state medical examiner’s office in Frankfort, Ky., for an autopsy.

The local coroner did say that it appeared Haley had been in the car overnight, for approximately 10 to 12 hours.

Police had tot ape off the parking spot on the south end of the Walmart parking lot until the body could be removed from the car.
