QUESTION: Last year, a woman was found dead in her car on Q Street close to a storage rental facility in Rio Linda. Did they ever find out why she died or what happened to her?
Submitted by: Lynn, Rio Linda

ANSWER: A 46-year-old woman was found dead in her car in the 2600 block of Q Street in Rio Linda on Jan. 18, 2012.

According to a story in The Bee, Sacramento County sheriff's deputies responded to the location about 4:15 p.m. after a caller reported that a group of people were gathered around a parked car yelling that a person was dead inside.

Although homicide detectives were called to the scene to investigate, a sheriff's spokesman said at the time that there were no obvious signs of trauma.

The Sacramento County Coroner's Office website listed the cause of death as "undetermined."
