L.A. County coroner’s officials were investigating the death of a woman whose body was found Friday morning at a Lake View Terrace school.

Police found the body at Brainard Elementary on the 11400 block of Brainard Avenue at 7:15 a.m. The death did not appear to be a homicide, said Officer Rosario Herrera with the Los Angeles Police Department.

The woman was described as black and in her mid-30s, said Mario Sainz, an investigator with the L.A. County coroner's office. Her name was unavailable.

“At this point, we can’t get into further details,” Sainz said. “We’ll need to find out what happened and how she died.”

A receptionist who answered the phone at the school’s office said that as far as she knew, no one at the school knew the woman.
