DEL VALLE, Texas (KXAN) — Authorities are investigating after a body was found inside a vehicle near Del Valle Saturday morning.

According to the Travis County Sheriff’s Office, a Hispanic man in his 20s was found inside the vehicle, near SH 71 and Doctor Scott Drive.

“It’s not everyday that we deal with something like this, and, of course, it’s unsettling for whoever it was that decided to pull over and render aid,” Kristen Dark with the sheriff’s office said. “At this point in time, we don’t suspect foul play at all, but we don’t jump to conclusions this early in the investigation. We will look at everything and come to a conclusion when we have all the facts.”

The sheriff’s office has spoken to several witnesses who had either seen the vehicle or stopped to check on the man. The Travis County Medical Examiner’s office is investigating the cause of death.
