This noon police identified the Yellow Springs resident found dead in a car this morning as Dennis Peer, age 59. Peer had been a resident of the village in the past and was currently living in his car, police said. He was frequently seen in the recent past sitting on the bench outside Tom’s Market.
Police made the discovery of the body in a car parked in front of the apartment building on the corner of Winter and Elm Streets, after receiving a call at 9:19 a.m.
The death appeared to be due to natural causes and there was no evidence of contraband, according to Police Chief Dave Hale. However, an official cause of death can not be determined until the coroner’s report is received.
