COVINA >> Foul play was not suspected Sunday in the death of a man found slumped over the wheel of his van in the parking lot of a Covina grocery store, officials said.
A passer-by called authorities about 8 a.m. after noticing a man slumped over the steering wheel of a van in the parking lot of Stater Bros., 1023 N. Grand Ave., Covina police Sgt. Antonio Zavala said.
Paramedics responded and pronounced the man, who was estimated to be in his 50s, dead at the scene, the sergeant said.
It appeared the body may have gone unnoticed for several days, he said.
Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner officials planned an autopsy, however, there were no overt signs of foul play, and the death was believed to be due to natural causes.
