A tragic story out of Livingston, Texas, north of Houston.

The Polk County News reports the body of a Wichita Falls woman was found last night in a car in a Walmart parking lot.  She was found by her mother, who had reported her missing Wednesday.

The woman, identified as 26 year-old Jessica Lynn Burgess of Wichita Falls, was found in the back seat of her car.  Police say she had probably been dead more than a day.

Her mother had filed a missing persons report with the Wichita Falls Police and traced her daughter's cell phone to Livingston.  Police there searched the area, but yesterday afternoon, her mother called to report she had found her daughter's car and her body in the Livingston Walmart parking lot.

Foul play is not suspected at this time.
