When first responders arrived around 5 a.m. Wednesday, they found 38-year old Jason Harris dead in the front seat.
Throughout the morning, police received numerous calls that said passing motorists observed the vehicle as early as 3:45 AM.
Once the vehicle was searched, Harris’ identity was confirmed and police began the process to work on notifying his family.
