VANCOUVER, Wash. – Police said a woman was found dead inside a Vancouver mall restroom early Monday morning.

Vancouver police spokeswoman Kim Kapp said a cleaning crew found the elderly woman's body inside a restroom at the Westfield Mall.

According to the Clark County medical examiner, the woman is 61-year-old Lyudmila I. Tikhomirova. The medical examiner did not release a cause of death, but Kapp said the woman appeared to have died of natural causes and remained in the restroom overnight. Police do not suspect foul play.

A mall spokesperson told KATU a Macy's employee found the body around 6:16 a.m. inside a restroom at the store.
