The injuries sustained by a woman who was found dead inside a Ford Explorer in Belmont on Saturday night may have been self-inflicted, police said Sunday.

City woman inside, according to police.

The woman appeared to have suffered trauma “consistent with knives,” which were found inside the locked vehicle, police said.

She was pronounced dead about 10 minutes later.
