COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- The Collier County Sheriff's Office has identified the body found in a vehicle at Collier Blvd. and Golden Gate Parkway last Thursday as 59-year-old Robert Lee Axelson.

A frequent patron of the shopping plaza told WINK News he had never seen the vehicle that the Axelson was found inside. He said he pulled in next to the vehicle, smelled a bad odor coming from inside, and called 911.

The cause of death is still unknown.
