Authorities in Howell are on scene this evening where a man was found deceased in his vehicle.
The man was located around 5:00 PM at the Howell Common Shopping Center by a passerby who notified police.
Upon arrival, police determined the man had been deceased for several days.
When police determined the deceased was Jewish, they immediately contacted Chaplain Seth Haber and other Askonim to ensure the body and scene were handled in accordance to Jewish law. Misaskim was then called to assist with cleaning up the scene.
”The police officers were extremely courteous and caring,” said one of the Askonim on scene.
The man, who had no local family, was approximately 70 years old, police tell TLS. The death does not appear to be suspicious in nature.
Askonim are working with the Medical Examiner’s office to ensure he receives a proper burial.
