A Pennsylvania woman was found dead in the driver’s seat of a car in Philadelphia on Thursday, after the car had been ticketed multiple times.

Nadia Malik, a 22-year old mother who had been reported missing Feb. 9, was found dead in thecar, with no visible signs of foul play. Police said that ticketing officers would not have been able to see inside the car, since the windows were heavily tinted and the windshield was covered in snow, the Associated Press reports. The car was ticketed multiple times, towed out of an emergency zone, and then repeatedly ticketed again until police finally discovered the body inside the car on an anonymous tip, the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

The woman was lying down in a completely reclined driver’s seat, and had a black duffel bag over her head. Authorities scheduled an autopsy Friday to determine the cause of death.

Malik has two small children with her boyfriend, who was arrested earlier this month in Ohio on a parole violation. Police are expected to question him about Malik’s death.

If your kid says he wants to be a cop maybe you should point to this story.  Rather a gardener than a cop.

Um, no visible sign of foul play. Are they nuts??? "The woman was lying down in a completely reclined driver’s seat, and had a black duffel bag over her head"

In our area we get pulled over and tickets for having too dark of windows. So if the cops were ticketing her why not knock on the window or open the door? Common sense would tell me that.

What I want to know is, what's this about an anonymous tip?  If the woman's windows were tinted to the point of zero visibility, wouldn't the tip have to be coming from a guilty party?

Just a sad situation. Windows were heavily tinted

@DeeEEades  Becuase if you were smart enough to think they you can't get pulled over when YOU'RE NOT DRIVING! At the same time why would they knock on the window or open the dorr when OPENING THE DOOR IS ILLEGAL and knocking on the door will accomplish nothing when they don't know anyone is inside. Common sense would tell me that.

@donvon1204  Just because SOMEONE saw inside of the car doesn't mean that they did it. Maybe they just glanced one time and saw someone lying down then came out the next day and saw them AGAIN in the exact same position and got worrisome.
