Po­lice have re­leased the iden­tity of the man found dead in his car at a White Plains gas sta­tion last Thurs­day.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors are cur­rently await­ing au­topsy re­sults to de­ter­mine the cause of death for Ti­mothy Ak­ers, 47, of White Plains, though no ob­vi­ous

signs of foul play, un­usual ac­tiv­ity or sub­stance abuse were found, ac­cord­ing to au­thor­i­ties.

Around 1:52 p.m. July 7, deputies with the Charles County Sher­iff’s Of­fice re­sponded to the Wawa gas sta­tion lo­cated in the 4200 block of Crain High­way near Billings­ley Road af­ter a cit­i­zen called to re­port an un­con­scious per­son in­side a car parked next to a gas pump, po­lice re­ported. Upon ar­rival, of­fi­cers at­tempted to re­sus­ci­tate the man through CPR, but he was pro­nounced dead on the scene.

Po­lice say it ap­pears the car had been there for at least an hour.

“It’s early in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, and we’re not go­ing to rule any­thing out,” said sher­iff’s of­fice spokesper­son Diane Richard­son last week.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing, pend­ing an au­topsy re­port from the Of­fice of the Chief Med­i­cal Ex­am­iner in Bal­ti­more.
