Police Investigate Unattended Death in Vehicle

 

            Fair Oaks District Station – Police are investigating a death that occurred in a vehicle at around 7 p.m. Friday, December 28 in the Vienna area.

            An officer came across a minivan that had crashed into a barrier at the end of a service road off of Chain Bridge Road near Glengyle Drive. The officer summoned for rescue and it was determined that the driver was deceased. Evidence suggested that the driver’s injuries may not have been caused by the crash; detectives and crime scene investigators responded to the scene.

            Police have identified the deceased as a 19-year-old Gainesville area man. They are investigating the incident as “suspicious” and are determining whether or not criminal circumstances are involved. An autopsy is being conducted by the Office of the Medical Examiner to determine the exact cause and manner of death.

            The investigation is continuing.
