ANCHORAGE, Alaska (CBS Seattle/AP) — Anchorage Police say a 57-year-old woman was found dead after spending the night in a tent in Anchorage.

She was found just before 7:30 a.m. Saturday.

An initial investigation has found no foul play was involved, although it was reported that she was drinking the night before.

Police have identified the woman as Phyllis Ayaprun.

Ayaprun is the second woman to die outdoors in Anchorage in three days.

Thirty-four year old Elaine Marie Cleveland was found dead sleeping in a van early Thursday morning.
