A Harrisburg man returning from a weekend trip to New York City says he stopped at an Uptown car wash to clean out his rental car and discovered his female companion was dead in the back seat. Not knowing what to do, he drove to the Police Bureau to report her death. The man told police the victim, a 25 year-old Harrisburg woman, and a 15 year-old female had accompanied him on the trip. The victim apparently experienced some sort of episode and died while in the back seat of the car. Police hope an autopsy will determine the cause of death.
