CAPE CORAL, Fla.- The Cape Coral Police Department is currently working a death investigation at the plaza located at 3015 SW Pine Island Road. The decedent, an 80-year-old man, was located inside of a vehicle parked in front of the Publix at that location.
Police units will be onscene for a while. However, there is no suspect at large in this situation nor any danger to the public.
"The Cape Coral Police Department does not make a common practice of issuing releases regarding death investigations, except for cases where foul play is suspected, or there is an ongoing danger to the community. In this situation, given the public and highly visible location, we wanted to address it briefly, to allay any concerns," said Det. Sgt. Dana S. Coston, Cape Coral Police Department Public Affairs Officer.
