Parking attendants ticketed a car parked on a university campus three times without noticing a dead woman slumped in the front seat.
Police found the body of the 47-year-old woman in the vehicle on November 11 at the University of New Mexico.
Her husband had reported her missing on November 4.
Albuquerque police spokeswoman Sgt Trish Hoffman said the woman's death appeared to be a suicide, and police had closed their investigation.
Sgt Hoffman said noticing the woman earlier would not have changed the outcome.
She said the driver's seat was laid back and the woman appeared to be asleep. Sgt Hoffman also said she could not be seen easily.
