A decomposed body was found inside a car at a Walmart parking lot Thursday afternoon. Police believe it may have been there for more than a month.

Tulsa Police responded to the Walmart in the 6600 block of South Memorial after they received a call of a body inside a car. When officers arrived they said they found a decomposed body inside a white SUV.

Police said they have been to the scene several times to check on the car but didn't know someone was inside. They said they ran the license plate, but nothing was out of the ordinary.

Thursday, police said someone walking by the car noticed a foul odor, found the body and called police.

Surveillance video goes back to mid-March and shows the car in the parking lot, but police believe it's been there since February. 

Police said they don't believe foul play is involved, but will keep the case open until the medical examiner inspects the body.

Due to the heavy decomposition, police said they can't determine if the person is male or female.
