Woman’s Body Found in Parking Lot Beneath Container Trailer
Anchorage police are still looking for answers after an Anchorage woman was found dead in a midtown parking lot early Wednesday morning.
Lena Joseph, 44, spent the night under a container trailer in the Mall at Sears parking lot with her boyfriend, Richard Robinson.
He first called police around 6:45 a.m. Wednesday and told police that when he awoke, he found Joseph unresponsive beside him; she was later declared dead at the scene.
"We don't have a cause of death as of yet. There were no outward signs of foul play, though, and an autopsy was conducted. But pending the results of some other testing, it's not official,” said Anchorage police spokeswoman Anita Shell.
Joseph's family said she was not homeless and police are unsure why she was sleeping in a parking lot.
