LONG BEACH -- Police and Coroner's officials were called to a Belmont Shore home Wednesday after a woman's body was found, authorities said.

Long Beach Police Department patrol officers were called to the home in the 200 block of Nieto Avenue at about 9 a.m. regarding the death, said Nancy Pratt, a police department spokeswoman.

There were no signs of foul play and the death appeared to be due to natural causes, though the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office will have to conduct an autopsy to issue an official ruling, Pratt said.
