LANS­DALE » Lans­dale po­lice and the Mont­gomery County Dis­trict At­tor­ney’s of­fice are con­duct­ing a death in­ves­ti­ga­tion of a man found dead in his car on Val­ley Forge Road last week.

Ac­cord­ing to Po­lice Chief Michael Trail, pa­trol of­fi­cers re­sponded on May 9 to a call of a sus­pi­cious ve­hi­cle on the 700 block of North Val­ley Forge Road, where they found a white Nis­san Al­tima.

“The ve­hi­cle was later de­ter­mined to be owned by a Daniel Tor­res, who had been re­ported miss­ing to state po­lice — he was never re­ported miss­ing to us,” Trail said.

Sub­se­quent in­ves­ti­ga­tion of the car later de­ter­mined that it was owned by Tor­res, the owner of Danny’s Bar­ber­shop on 4th St. in Bridge­port, and Tor­res was found de­ceased in­side the ve­hi­cle, ac­cord­ing to Trail.

An au­topsy on Tor­res was per­formed “rel­a­tively quickly” af­ter the body was dis­cov­ered, ac­cord­ing to the chief, but fi­nal re­sults are still pend­ing.

“Through­out the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, we have def­i­nitely made a de­ter­mi­na­tion that this in­ci­dent posed no threat of harm to the com­mu­nity. At this time, there is no dan­ger posed to the com­mu­nity as a re­sult of this in­ci­dent,” Trail said.

More in­for­ma­tion about the in­ci­dent could be re­leased once the au­topsy re­sults are com­plete, he said.
