MADERA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a 14-year-old girl was found dead inside a car in the parking lot of a high school in California's Central Valley.

The Fresno Bee reports (http://bit.ly/18SPoWm ) the girl's brother told police he and his sister drove to Madera South High School together Wednesday morning.

She stayed in the car because her first class started an hour after his.

Police say when school let out around 3 p.m., the brother went back to the car and discovered her body. He drove to a hospital, where police were notified.

Investigators say the heat may have played a role in her death, but an autopsy may find an underlying medical condition.

Temperatures were near 90 Wednesday in Madera, about 20 miles northwest of Fresno.

The girl's name was not released.
