MOUNT VERNON — An investigation is being conducted into the death of a 48-year-old woman found in her car Friday night in a parking lot near Papa John’s on Coshocton Avenue.

Alicia Wilson, no address released, was found in her car by a Mount Vernon police officer who requested a squad just after 11:30 p.m. She was later pronounced dead at the scene.

According to Knox County Coroner Dr. Jennifer Ogle, alcohol is believed to be involved but no cause of death has been determined yet.

“At this point, no foul play is suspected,” Ogle told the News.

More details will be released as they become available.
