(Scroll down for video) A woman called police after discovering a body in the trunk of the car.
The woman was shopping at a Walmart in California, when she found the body as she was placing her bags inside her car.
Riverside Police responded to the scene and are investigating after the woman reported finding the decomposed body in the trunk of her 1999 Lexus.
The discovery was made on the 5200 block of Van Buren Boulevard around 4:40 p.m.
The woman told police that her car had a bad smell all day, but it was only when she opened her trunk that she found the body.
Police said that the woman knows the man, but she has no idea how he ended up in the trunk. Police would not confirm the identity of the man, but said that it was not the body of the woman’s husband.
Witnesses said they heard the woman tell police that the man was her former neighbor. An autopsy will determine how and when the man died.
