XENIA, Ohio (WDTN) – Xenia police are investigating the death of woman whose body was found inside her car Wednesday evening.

Rochelle Barnes, 31, was found behind 506 E. Market Street. Some nearby neighbors made the discovery after seeing the car behind the abandoned house.

“We don’t know exactly a cause of death or anything like that,” Xenia Police Division Capt. Scott Anger told the Xenia Daily Gazette. “It appeared she had been there for a little while. At this point we’re not suspecting foul play.”

Autopsy results are expected in about eight weeks. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
