According to the Hollywood Reporter, the 56-year-old was hiking with a friend in the Los Angeles-area Griffith Park Monday. After a short while, the friend decided it was too hot and went home.
When Menke did not return to her house that night, a search was conducted. Her body was found at 2 a.m. yesterday.
Ed Winter, the assistant chief of the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office, gave the news source a few more details about the unfortunate incident.
"It did not appear to be foul play. Possibly natural. We're not making any determination until we're able to find out her medical history and conduct an autopsy," he told the news provider.
Temperatures in L.A. skyrocketed to scorching numbers Monday. Recent reports have stated that the thermometers soared to 113 degrees, an all-time record for California's largest city.
Menke spent her career working on a multitude of Quentin Tarantino films, such as "Inglourious Basterds" and "Pulp Fiction." She was nominated for an Academy Award for both films.
