Ohio Township police and the Allegheny County medical examiner's office are investigating the death of an 81-year-old woman found in a vehicle this morning in the parking lot of Avonworth High School.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's office identified her as Gloria Hamilton of Ben Avon.

Police do not suspect foul play.

A medical examiner's office representative said someone saw the unresponsive woman, who is not a school employee, in the vehicle this morning and alerted authorities.

The woman is believed to have attended a rehearsal of the Avonworth musical last night and died afterward in her car. Every year, the district rehearses its musical for a group of local senior citizens the night before opening night.
