The Jacksonville Police Department is investigating a body found at the old Wal-Mart in Jacksonville.

At approximately 12:35 P.M. on Thursday, February 1, 2018, Jacksonville Police Department responded to a report of a person unresponsive in a vehicle at the old Wal-Mart located at 2025 N. Marine Blvd., according to JPD Media Liaison, Beth Purcell.

Police say the person found was 61-years-old and no foul play is suspected at this time.

The death at this time is an “unattended death”– that means a person who died outside of the presence of a medical professional.

    it was a man mid 50s to 60s is what I was told by the guy who was partially responsible for finding the poor guy dead in his car. he was approached by a woman who had three small children in her car and she was worried because she saw no movement and waved my friend over and asked him to take a closer look so that her children weren’t directly involved. my friend was told by police that the deceased was missing for a few days and they had been searching for him and suspected that he had also been deceased for about 2 days as of the time he was found in his vehicle.
