A post mortem into the death of a man found in his car in Gallows Corner Tesco has proved inconclusive and police are awaiting drug test results to provide an answer.
Behar Brace, 50, of Meadow Road, Romford, had been missing for nearly a month before he was found slumped in the back of his vehicle in the car park.
Police announced today that the autopsy held last week could not determine the cause of his death.
They will await the result of a toxicology test to determine whether the man found dead on October 22 had consumed drugs.
Havering Police began searching for Mr Brace after his concerned family reported him missing on September 26.
They used CCTV to search for the number plate of his blue Volkswagen Passat and attempted to trace his phone.
Officers were unable to find him until nearly a month later when a member of Tesco cleaning staff called police to report a smell coming from a car matching Mr Brace’s.
Police confirmed Mr Brace dead at the scene and have treated the death as unexplained, but not suspicious.
An employee of Timpson, based in the Tesco store, said: “It was a car in the car park, a guy who cleans the car park and comes in early was complaining he could smell something.”
The toxicology results are expected in about six weeks.
