COSTA MESA -- A woman drove around with a decomposing corpse for months before the body was discovered by police.
Officers made the gruesome discovery on Monday while responding to a report of an illegally parked car.
Police say the woman tried to cover the mummified corpse with pieces of clothing.
The car was blocking a driveway in the 2000 block of Tustin Avenue in Costa Mesa.
Officers could smell a foul odor coming from the car, and after seeing a leg underneath the clothing, broke a window to get access inside.
Inside the car, officers also found a box of baking soda that the driver used to try to dissipate the smell.
Costa Mesa police believe the body is that a transient woman in her 50's from Fountain Valley.
The driver of the car says she befriended the woman at a local park and allowed her to sleep in the car overnight.
When she found the woman had died, she continued to drive the car with the body, said Sgt. Ed Everett.
The driver told police she was afraid to contact police about the body, so she continued to drive the car.
An autopsy has revealed no obvious signs of foul play.
Officials believe the woman had been dead anywhere from three to 10 months, Everett said.
Baking soda wouldn’t even touch that smell!
Here, hold my baking soda and watch this...
Only in L.A..
She wanted in the fast lane.
A novel approach to use the carpool lane?
And what is a 'transient' person?? The media is forever trying to find polite ways of saying homeless.
Lord have mercy....
I wish they had found her on November 3rd.
ACORN will probably get her registered to vote Democrat now.
What a crazy world we live in.
Was she a Robert Byrd staffer?
"Nothing,,,they all do that."
Larry King, perhaps?
Wow, that’s unbelievable! I had the exact same experience about three years ago. Turns out, it was actually my fiancee. As Niles said of Maris: “If you kissed her too fast, you got an ice cream headache.”
On the rare occasions we went away for the weekend, she would turn the air conditioning in the room to the absolute maximum. I think she had to constantly be on guard against her body thawing.
No names, wonder if the driver was an illegal alien. That would be a reason to avoid going to the police.
The car likely had an Obama bumper sticker and the woman was probably just driving her to the nearest early voting location.
Obviously, this lady never heard of lime.
$1.00 bet says it’s an ILLEGAL ALIEN!!
That’s nothing ... I’ve been married to one (at least in bed) for some years now
Charon alert! If you drive, don’t stink; park legal if you must drive with a mummy behind; and throw some baking soda over your shoulder now and then, for good luck.
Gonna be a fun thread.
...multi passenger only lanes can be a real bwitch in Kali.
...."best cup holder,never complains or nuttin"
Once they bloat up and pop nothing helps much.
I hate it when the coppers catch me with a decomposing corpse in the car.
From the ocregister.com: “Officers are also looking at whether there were any health code violations due to the fact that the driver was transporting a corpse...”
Now THAT is bizarre. California. Where they want to outlaw soft drinks and they think twinkies can make you violent. But they’re not sure they have a law on the books about driving around with a dead body for three months or more.
Some people will do anything to drive in the carpool lane...
I was on a jury for a murder trial where the perp did this.
Acc to ocregister.com, driver is a former real estate agent and the car is registered to her sick father.
They’re not releasing her name yet. She’ll always be Sharon to me.
awww poor fnkg baby....Maybe you should take a bath once in awhile. Oh Oh here's an idea, look in the mirror...maybe you'll discover WHY that is. Oh Oh Oh here's another idea, put some deodarant on...Best idea? Keep your stupid comments about your mate to yourself you dork.
You are sicker than I.
I will buy you as many drinks as you can hold, should we meet.
KFI Radio: Police said that all of the body’s fluids leaked onto the front floorboard of the car...
Are you two married to one aother, by any chance?
What the hell are you talking about? I wouldn’t give this clown a cold cup of water if he/she was in hell.
Maybe she thought it was radiator fluid.
“Acc to ocregister.com, driver is a former real estate agent...”
That Orange County market is Hell...
LOL - perfect. And when I look at your tagline, it gets even funnier.
I am totally ROFLOL.
Did she commute with her erstwhile friend in the HOV lane?
I’m not convinced. I think you ARE married to him
Or someone just like him.
Or WAS married to someone like him.
There are no homeless, there is a Democratic administration in power.
OW freep mailed me.....
