FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — St. Louis County police are investigating after a man's body was found inside a car in Ferguson, but it isn't immediately clear if the death is related to the unrest that followed the grand jury's decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson.


Police were called at 9 a.m. to a residential area, where a man was found dead inside a parked car. The victim's name has not been released.

Authorities are calling the death "suspicious," but have not determined if there is any connection to the violence that broke out last night.

The car was parked on a street near Canfield Drive, where Wilson shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown on Aug. 9.
