VALLEY FORGE, Pa. (AP) - Police say they don’t suspect foul play in the death of an elderly woman found beside a burning car at Valley Forge National Historic Park.

Authorities say a preliminary autopsy suggests the woman died Tuesday night of carbon monoxide poisoning and smoke inhalation.

Police on Wednesday tell Philly.com (http://goo.gl/PV6XcW) they have not yet identified the woman.

Lower Providence police say they believe the car fire was accidental. Chief Francis Carroll also says that suicide has been ruled out.

Authorities say her body was found near the Betzwood picnic area at about 10:20 p.m. by an officer on patrol.
