DETROIT (WWJ) - A Grosse Pointe Park woman is found dead in her car on Detroit’s eastside. Now, a grieving family is looking for answers.

Detroit Police are looking into the apparent murder of 56-year-old Jane Bashara of Grosse Pointe Park.

Bashara was reported missing Tuesday night by her husband. About 12 hours later her body was found in the backseat of her Mercedes-Benz SUV. It was parked in an alley on Detroit’s eastside near Seven Mile and Hoover.

Police are not sure yet exactly how she died, but her body did have signs of trauma.

An autopsy is set for Thursday to determine the cause of death. Dozens of grief-stricken family members and friends remembered Bashara at a candlelight vigil on Wednesday night.
