A rental car company received a sketchy, anonymous tip that one of their cars was abandoned in an alley early this morning.The employee responded only to find a dead woman in the backseat of one of their cars with her pants pulled down, according to CBS Los Angeles. The woman was found in a silver Suzuki near an alley at Jefferson Boulevard and 12th Avenue. The employee called police around 1am this morning to investigate the case.

The woman was described as being in her mid-30s or early 40s, but authorities are not releasing her name. The anonymous tipster is considered a person of interest in the case, according to the Los Angeles Times.
