HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) - Police say a Hagerstown woman found dead along with her two children in a parked car was a native of Guyana.

Capt. Paul Kifer says there's no apparent cause of death of the woman or her children, ages six months and 18 months. They were found Monday afternoon in a car parked at Western Heights Middle School in the city's West End.

Police are withholding their names pending notification of relatives in South America. Kifer says autopsies will determine how they died.

He says the car was in park with the ignition off and the windows up on a 90-degree afternoon.

Kifer says the woman had recently moved to Hagerstown from West Virginia. He says the children's father also lives in Hagerstown but wasn't married to their mother.
