Sgt. Dax Laporte told reporters that there are signs of trauma to the man’s body and the death is being investigated as a homicide. The man’s name has not been released.

Police say a person walking in the area shortly before 3 a.m. Monday called police after seeing the car running and a person slumped over inside the vehicle. Police say the man was alive when officers arrived, but had died by the time an ambulance reached the scene.
