A body was found Wednesday afternoon in a vehicle on Sherwood Common Boulevard, but foul play is not suspected, said East Baton Rouge Sheriff's spokeswoman Casey Rayborn Hicks. 

Deputies are waiting on the coroner to rule on the cause of death before any further investigation, Hicks said. 

Officials were initially called out to 4500 Sherwood Common Blvd. at 12:35 p.m. after someone saw a person in a vehicle, Hicks said. The person was dead when authorities arrived at the scene.
