NYC Woman Believes Her Father Lay Dead Inside His Car For Weeks While Police Wrote Tickets Over And Over
John Slattery NEW YORK (CBS)
A New York City woman said her father apparently lay dead for weeks in a minivan while police repeatedly left parking tickets on the vehicle, seen here, below the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway underpass.
Police made a gruesome discovery earlier this week while getting ready to tow a heavily-ticketed van – a decomposed body in the back seat.
It was that of a missing man, and now his family wants to know to how officers could ticket the vehicle numerous times -- and never notice what was inside. But then again, maybe they did and just didn't feel like dealing w/it.
Ticket people are not really police, right?
His daughter suspects George Morales, who suffered from diabetes and heart problems, may have felt ill, and pulled off the road for a nap. A window was cracked. The odor became overpowering. After the car was ticketed each Monday for a month, a marshal, about to tow the van, noticed a body in the back seat.
