— A man found dead in a vehicle parked along the side of Interstate 75 in Manatee County Tuesday is likely a suicide victim, according to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office.

The unidentified body was found at 2:35 p.m. at Mile Marker 231, said Detective Rick Alvarado.

“We believe there was no foul play involved,” Alvarado said Tuesday night. “It seems the victim died from a self-inflicted wound.”

The body was found in a Chevrolet sport utility, Alvarado said.
