AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - An autopsy is planned today after a body was found inside a car in Augusta over the weekend.

The Richmond County Coroner’s Office says the body of 34-year-old Latoya Jackson, of Evans, was found Saturday inside a car behind a house in the 3000 block of Skinner Mill Road.

She was pronounced dead at 8:23 a.m. Saturday.

Authorities say the car left the roadway and drove through a yard before stopping behind the home.

The autopsy will determine whether a medical issue caused Jackson to drive off the road.
