Sponsored by:

Authorities in Tuolumne County believe a woman whose half naked body was found slumped in the front seat of a car earlier this week near Tuolumne committed suicide.

Investigators say the body of 47 year-old Patricia Aguirre of Modesto was found Tuesday in her father´s car by an area rancher.

An autopsy was performed Thursday, but the Stanislaus County coroner did not release exact details on how the woman died. A toxicology tests should reveal the cause. Investigators found no evidence of drugs or alcohol in the car and there were no signs of trauma on the body.
