BATAVIA TOWNSHIP, Ohio (FOX19) - A woman was found dead in a car outside of a Batavia Township business Sunday, according to the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office.

Officials identified the woman as Miranda Rena Hesler, 27, of Pickerington.

The sheriff’s office says deputies and EMS responded to a 911 call at 10:39 a.m. that a woman was lying in a car unresponsive outside of the business in the 4200 block of Grissom Drive.

The coroner’s office pronounced Hesler dead at 12:47 p.m.

Deputies say her cause of death is not yet known, but officials plan to do a toxicology screening.

The 911 call reporting the unresponsive woman came after the business owner made non-emergency call reporting a breaking-and-entering into the business one hour before, authorities say.

The sheriff’s office is investigating.
