(Newser) – A Los Angeles County employee lay dead and slumped over her desk in an office cubicle for what could have been as long as a day before anybody noticed, police say.

She had last been seen alive at 9am Friday morning, say detectives, who suspect she died from a stroke or heart attack. (Click here for another depressing work-related story.)
