CHANDLER, Ariz. -- A Valley high school teacher who was reported missing late last month has died.
Chandler Police have announced that Jean Valentino was dead when she was found Sunday morning inside her car at the Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall parking garage.
Police said no foul play is suspected, but the investigation is ongoing. Investigators said they don't know how long the body had been there, but there were no obvious signs of trauma.
"She was discovered by a Scottsdale police officer on routine patrol," said Det. Seth Tyler with the Chandler Police Department. "It was a little frustrating for us and I'm sure for her son and fiance because we really didn't have a lot to go on in terms of where we could start looking for her."
Valentino, who taught at North Canyon High School, was last seen on the morning of August 25 at her Chandler home.
Her family said at the time that she had been taking medication for severe migraines and other issues.
