Waterloo police have identified the man they found dead in a parked car, and say the death is “suspicious.” Thirty-four-year-old Robert Joseph Shannon of Parkersburg was found inside the running Hyundai car at the intersection of Poplar and Wittier Avenues on Waterloo’s east side.
Police were first called to the scene around 4:00 yesterday afternoon. An ambulance came and took Shannon’s body from the car about four hours later. Police say an autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.
