A woman was found dead inside a Newport News apartment building as it was being evacuated because of flooding over the weekend.

Police say 38-year-old Brittany Hintz was found dead on Sunday inside her apartment in the Great Oaks Apartment Complex.

That's on Great Oaks Circle off Thimble Shoals Boulevard.

Right now, police cannot say how Hintz died.

They are waiting on results from an autospy.
