Longueuil police say a woman whose body was found Wednesday afternoon in a Longueuil parking lot was the victim of a homicide.
At around 1:20 p.m. yesterday, a passerby notified authorities after noticing the body in a car in a lot near Roland-Therrien Boulevard and du Tremblay Road in Longueuil, Que., on Montreal's South Shore.
Investigators say they found signs of violence on the body. The victim was a 54-year-old Longueuil resident, police say.
The vehicle, a blue Toyota Echo, was parked behind the Caisse Desjardins Pierre-Boucher, a bank located in a shopping and dining district.
A security perimeter was established around the parking lot, which adjoins businesses such as Rona, Harvey's and Barbies.
Investigators are asking anyone with information to get in touch with Longueuil police immediately by calling 450-463-7211.
