Man found dead at gas station identified
Police say no signs of foul play, autopsy results pending
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.
