Actor Peter Fonda Finds Dead Body In Parked Car
Actor Peter Fonda spied something out of the ordinary yesterday while driving on Sunset Boulevard in the Pacific Palisades: A man's body, slumped over the front seat in a parked car, according to KTLA.
The man was dead, and, according to some reports, may have been inside the vehicle for three days, after he committed suicide. An official cause of death, or an identity, for the man has not been released. 70-year-old Fonda, a member of the esteemed acting family perhaps best known for his role in Easy Rider, is not a suspect in the man's death.
The actor reported his gruesome finding to 9-1-1 immediately yesterday afternoon.
