Fayetteville Police on Friday afternoon were investigating the death of a woman found sitting alone and unresponsive in a vehicle parked in the parking lot of the McDonald’s located on Hwy. 85 near the intersection of Hwy. 92 North in the middle of the city. According to Lt. Mike Whitlow, they received the call around 2:11 p.m. after a customer spotted the deceased woman in an older model, black Honda Prelude. “We don’t suspect any foul play at this time,” Whitlow said, noting it may have been a suicide. A portion of the McDonald’s parking lot was marked off as a crime scene, but the restaurant remained open for business.
