Man finds a stranger dead in his van
August 2, 2012
After an unsuccessful attempt to wake the man, David Harrell drove him to French Hospital Medical Center. Hospital staff then informed Harrell the man was deceased and asked him to wait for police to arrive.
Harrell, however, quickly left the hospital. Police used video footage to track Harrell down. Investigators determined Harrell had nothing to do with the man’s death and released him.
The deceased man is described as a homeless man in his 50s or 60s. His name is being withheld pending notification of his next of kin.
