A South Florida woman says she peeked inside an SUV with a stack of parking citations on the windshield and saw the body of a man slumped over the center console. Carolyn White and many others are wondering why a parking meter attendant didn’t see 62-year-old Jacob Morpeau if he was inside the vehicle when the citations were written from Nov. 12 to Nov. 15, the day his body was found.
That’s a pretty good question?!? Are we so far removed and distracted that we can’t even notice a dead person right in front of us? This is just crazy, his poor family.
Liberty Viral had this to report:
The Sun Sentinel reports:
“Citations were issued to the Isuzu at 7:39 a.m. Saturday, Nov., 12, and again at 9:30 p.m. There weren’t any tickets issued on Sunday.” From Nov. 12 through Nov. 15, the day that Morpeau’s body was discovered by a woman identified as Carolyn White, tickets were issued to the SUV, though the city dismissed the $160 fee when it was discovered that Morpeau was dead. “Citations were issued to the Isuzu at 7:39 a.m. Saturday, Nov., 12, and again at 9:30 p.m. There weren’t any tickets issued on Sunday. On Monday the 14th, a parking officer wrote a ticket at 7:03 a.m. Then on Nov. 15th, the Isuzu was written up at 6:39 a.m. for one meter, and again at 6:42 a.m. at the meter just next to the spot the SUV was parked in. White came along around 12:25 p.m.”
Carolyn White said that she was walking by being nosy, because she never had a parking ticket and was curious to see what was inside, only to find Morpeau’s lifeless body still in the front seat. Her screams alerted the nearby business owner of Kevin’s Bail Bonds, where staff later called 911.
The family of Jacob Morpeau stated that they had not heard from him for a few days and friends of Morpeau had last spoken to him on November 11th.
The medical examiner’s office reports that Morpeau died of natural causes.
