Cops: Woman found dead in car in Middletown may have overdosed

MIDDLETOWN, Ohio -- Middletown police suspect a medical condition or drug overdose might be why a 60-year-old woman was found dead in the passenger seat of a parked vehicle Monday.

Lt. Scott Reeve, of the Middletown Division of Police, said authorities are still investigating the death of Angela Parrish, 60, of Middletown, though “no foul play” is suspected. Officers responded to the 3000 block of Morgan Street around 4:30 p.m. Monday after someone called and said there was a woman inside her abandoned car.

Officers found an unresponsive and “partially clothed” Parrish inside of a parked car, Reeve said.

Police would later question two women who had been with Parrish earlier that day. The women initially denied knowing anything about Parrish’s death, police said, but later admitted that they were with Parrish when “for whatever reason (she) became unresponsive.”
