The body of a man in his late 30s was found Wednesday afternoon in a vehicle parked on the driveway in San Luis Obispo.

Residents of the Johnson Avenue home went out to check on a friend who had spent the night in a motor home parked in his driveway, and found his body. There was a drug paraphernalia spread nearby, which led her to suspect an overdose of the drug.

S.L.O. Police and S.L.O. County sheriff’s deputies are investigating the death. CalcoNews does not release the name of the person remaining for further notice to his relative.

This is the fourth corpse in SLO County in a seven-day period.
