DEVELOPING~AUTHORITIES HAVE BEEN CALLED TO THE SOUTH PARKING LOT OF THE WAL-MART SUPERCENTER ON INDEPENDENCE FOR REPORTS OF A POSSIBLE DEAD BODY THAT MAY HAVE BEEN IN A VEHICLE FOR SEVERAL DAYS.

UPDATE: 
-
Cpl. Andrew Barksdale says a man noticed a red Ford Focus in the parking lot (he wasn't sure if it was a customer or an employee) earlier in the week and noticed the vehicle was still parked there today.  When he approached the vehicle a bad smell was emanating from it and when he looked inside he discovered a deceased woman and called 9-1-1.

Barksdale says Christina Glastetter was 45 years-old and from Springfield.  He also said the keys were in the ignition in the on position and the battery was dead and it appears a fire of some sort had taken place inside the vehicle.

Most of the woman's family have been notified, however, Barksdale says the woman's son is en route to Springfield from Columbia and authorities will not release the woman's name until he arrives.

There are no signs of foul play or self inflicted wounds to the woman's body.  An autopsy and toxicology will be performed tomorrow.  It will take six weeks for toxicology reports to come back.

In an unrelated case, a little over four years ago 45 year-old Amy Louise Meyer, of Nevada, was found dead in a locked vehicle in the same parking lot.

I keep the family in my prayers but did anyone notice the amount of women found dead in Walmart parking lots. Primarily in the southren states of GA and FL. I hope someone is looking into it to see I there is any connection. A body was just found here in a Deland, FL walmart. Albany, port charles, indepenance, orlando, tallahassee. Its too weird to overlook.
