An autopsy has been ordered to determine the cause of death for a 20-year-old man found dead in a vehicle in an Ark City neighborhood early this morning.
Just before 12:30 a.m., Cowley County Sheriff’s officers and Ark City EMS were called to the 1100 block of South 2nd for the report of an unresponsive person. Someone had seen the person in a vehicle and alerted a family member in an attempt to awaken the man.
They could not find a pulse and called 911.
The man was deceased when authorities arrived and an autopsy has been ordered.
Ark City police have so far indicated the incident was an unattended death and gave no indication foul play was involved. An investigation is ongoing.
