BEVERLY HILLS (AP/CBS) — Beverly Hills police report a hearse driver who was found dead with a body in the vehicle died while taking the casket to a funeral.

Lt. Lincoln Hoshino said authorities were alerted at about 3 p.m. Monday that a body was slumped over in the driver’s seat of a hearse parked near the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Garlandine Garvin, 59, apparently died of natural causes, according to police and a coroner’s spokesman.

Authorities said there was no evidence of foul play.

Police did not say what funeral home or cemetery the body was being sent.
