New York's Finest

#1 | N.Y. parking tickets pile up on van with dead driver

The Associated Press
NEW YORK -- A New York City woman says her father apparently lay dead for weeks in a minivan while police repeatedly left parking tickets on the vehicle.
Jennifer Morales of Manhattan told the Daily News on Thursday that she believes her father, George Morales, died of a heart attack.
Morales said she last heard from her dad in early May. She said she had contacted police, but police say they have no report on record.
A city marshal found the body of George Morales on Wednesday while trying to tow the minivan from beneath the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway overpass. Parking tickets and dust covered the vehicle.
It is unfortunate that this happened but in America with the high rate of homelessness and the refusal of the city of New York to solve this issue, this happens.

I suspect that different parking enforcement officers gave tickets to this minivan thinking that the person was just sleeping.

I am sure if the same officer came around would notice something suspicious.

In Toronto a couple of years ago they found a person that died on the subway train they determined that he died four hours earlier of a massive heart attack in his seat so during the morning rush hour people sat beside this dead person thinking he was sleeping.

With this incident the city of New York meter maids will change their policy of sleeping people in cars.
