A New Jersey woman was found dead inside a car parked on a Brooklyn street on Thursday, the victim of what appeared to be a drug overdose, a law enforcement official with knowledge of the incident said.
The woman, 28-year-old Maria Raudino, was found slumped over in the driver's seat of a 2003 Hyundai Sonata in Bensonhurst, police said. She was found at about 9:20 a.m. parked on the corner of 18th Avenue and 70th Street, leaning facedown onto the passenger seat.
The official said Raudino, from Toms River, had a history of drug use. There was no obvious trauma to her body.
