This story from Pico Rivera comes via the wire services. I’ll post an update later:
The L-A County coroner’s office plans perform an autopsy on the body of a man
who was found in the driver’s seat of a parked car in an un-incorporated area
near Pico Rivera. The body was discovered at Rooks Road and Peck
Roads last night. A parking citation had been left on the car.
*Here’s what KCBS/KCAL is reporting:
Employees at a nearby truck repair shop said the car — a 1980s four-door Lincoln — had been parked there all day, and, at some point, someone placed a parking ticket on the vehicle’s door.
A worker said firefighters who responded couldn’t believe that someone had issued the citation without noticing the deceased man.
