Man found dead in car, death investigated as suspicious in Attica

Posted: Updated:
SENECA COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Police are investigating a suspicious death of a man found in a car in Attica, OH Thursday morning.

Attica Police Chief Keith Turner says his department, along with investigators from the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations, is working on the case.

Turner says police were called to a house on High Street in Attica at 10:47 a.m. Thursday to check on a non-responsive man in a vehicle. The man, in his late 30s, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Wood County Coroner's Office is currently doing an autopsy, but Turner says the death is suspicious because there are wounds on the body that need explanation. He did not describe the wounds.

The police chief says the man's name will not be released until after the autopsy. Attica has not had a death investigation in at least 10 years, according to the chief.
