According to Laseter, the body belonged to a female employee and investigators do no believe foul play was involved in her death, KXAS-TV reported.

“After completely processing the crime scene... this does not seem like a homicide, it seems like an accident,” the police chief said.


The employee was found dead during business hours on the evening of May 11 at the fast-food restaurant that’s in a shopping center.

Autopsy results are pending.
