A San Jose man was discovered dead in the parking lot of a gas station in Lodi on Tuesday morning, prompting police detectives and evidence specialists to respond. Even though there was no indication of wrongdoing, police handled it as a crime scene and taped off the southeast corner of the parking lot at AM-PM Mini-Market, 800 E. Kettleman Lane.
The San Joaquin County Coroner’s Office performed an autopsy later on Tuesday, and according to early findings, the man’s death was caused by heart failure, according to Detective Leo Ramirez of the Lodi Police Department. Although some of the man’s relatives who were contacted informed police that he was going to a flea market in Galt, Ramirez said, the man’s name wasn’t immediately disclosed because family members needed to be notified first.
Officer Sierra Brucia arrived at the scene shortly after the man was discovered face down and half under the van. The manager had contacted the police. In the parking area behind the gas station, Tiger Trucking employee Lee Marshall was taking a break from washing trailers at the time.
Blood was pouring from what seemed to be a wound above the man’s eye when Brucia claimed to have turned the man’s body over. Soon after 10:30 a.m., paramedics came and declared the man dead; his corpse was then covered with a yellow tarp. Evidence John Whisler, a technician, started snapping pictures of the body, which included what seemed to be vomit under the van.
There were boxes of “T-shirt bags” inside the van, along with other boxes and boards.
