RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) - Police say a woman found a dead body inside the trunk of her car at a parking lot outside a Walmart store in Riverside.

The Press-Enterprise reports that the woman found the body upon opening her trunk around 4:45 p.m. Saturday after shopping at the store on Van Buren Blvd.

Riverside police say the Pomona woman had detected an unusual smell earlier in the day. Authorities did not know how long the man had been dead.

Police say the woman is a person of interest in the case and probably knew the victim.

The coroner has been working to identify the victim.
