A Michigan man was found dead in his car on Monday with a 2-year-old toddler in the backseat.
The Allegan County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the death of Levi Newcomb, 29, of Kalamazoo.
Detectives say a motorist contacted a deputy about a man passed out in a car at a nearby store, according to FOX13. The motorist said there was a small child sitting in the backseat of the car.
The deputy and first responders tried to revive Newcomb, but were unsuccessful. The 2-year-old is safe and with family members.
An autopsy has been scheduled and detectives are awaiting a toxicology report.
Newcomb had a history of drug abuse and had graduated from a court drug treatment program in 2014. He had been addicted to meth and had survived a meth lab explosion in 2009.
At the time of his treatment program graduation, Newcomb told FOX 17 that he had completed two years of courses, he was working full-time, was sober and turning his life around with his wife for their five children.
