Delaware State Police are investigating a suspicious death after they found a man dead in a taxicab Aug. 20 near Millsboro.

A passerby called police at 10 p.m. to report a suspicious vehicle parked on the shoulder of Country Living Road west of Hardscrabble Road, said Sgt. Paul Shavack of the Delaware State Police.

Police found an unresponsive man in the passenger compartment of the taxi; he was pronounced dead at the scene, Shavack said.

Police and investigators with the Delaware Department of Safety and Homeland Security Division of Forensic Science removed the body to conduct an autopsy, Shavack said.

The name of the man has not been released pending positive identification and notification of next of kin. Shavack said he cannot confirm the name of the taxi company until the man is identified and next of kin has been notified.
