Hall's cause of death pending

SAN DIEGO - A body found in the trunk of a car parked in front of a Kearny Mesa business complex was that of a 23-year-old woman who disappeared last month, authorities said Saturday.

A patrol officer spotted the 1997 Toyota Camry registered to Grace Hall, of San Diego, in the 7700 block of Convoy Court shortly before 9:30 a.m. Thursday.

Detectives searched the sedan and found the clothed body of a woman, San Diego police homicide Lt. Jorge Duran told reporters. The county Medical Examiner's Office confirmed Saturday the body was that of Hall, but said the cause of her death was pending.

On Tuesday, police sought the public's help in finding Hall. At the time of her disappearance, she was planning to travel to a home in Sherman Oaks for a job interview, authorities said.

The last known sighting of her was on March 20 in the 9100 block of Rebecca Avenue in Serra Mesa.
