Let's Not Hire Any More of Those Meter Maids From the Blind Center
Parking tickets pile up on van with dead driver
Jun. 5, 2009
NEW YORK - A New York City woman says her father apparently lay dead for weeks in an illegally parked van 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 van from the city street where it had stood for over a month. Parking tickets and dust covered the vehicle. The parking tickets were removed before photographing the van. Mr. Morales was removed from the van, too, prior to towing.
