The body of a deceased male found in a parked SUV at a local restaurant Saturday night has been identified as 30-year-old Tyler S. Howe of San Angelo.
Howe was located inside a 2015 Jeep Cherokee Latitude that was parked behind Church's Chicken, 3006 Knickerbocker Road on August 1, 2015.
Several Patrol Officers secured the scene while the Crime Scene Investigations Unit and Detectives with the Criminal Investigations Division conducted the investigation. Justice of the Peace Eddie Howard responded and ordered Howe's body sent for autopsy. At this time, the cause of death is unknown.
Police were dispatched to the location around 8:22 p.m. for an unknown problem. Upon arrival, officers spoke with a witness who said he called police after noticing a person's feet, upright in the Jeep's driver's seat. The male witness told officers he then approached the vehicle and noticed what appeared to be a dead body inside. Restaurant employees told detectives they observed the parked Jeep several hours before police were called to the scene.
This is an ongoing investigation and no other information is available at this time.
