FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) –  The Allen County Coroner has ruled out foul play in the of death of a man found dead inside a car in July evening.

Police were called to the 2200 block of Edsall Avenue just before 6:30 p.m. on July  9 Wednesday after someone called 911 and said there was a man inside their car who appeared dead.

The Allen County Coroner’s Office previously identified the man as 43-year-old William R. Davila, of Fort Wayne, and said foul play was not suspected. Weeks later, in September, the coroner’s office said the death was due to a medical condition and that fould play had been ruled out.

Before the determination from the coroner on the lack of foul play, police were considering the death suspicious and looking for possible witnesses or people with information. Police were hoping that the McCormick Place apartment complex, where the vehicle was located, might have video surveillance and that would give them some clues as to what happened.

Sources told NewsChannel 15 early Thursday morning that Davila did not own the car he was found in.
