Lowell man, 27, found dead in cab of tow truck

MONROE, Ore. - A 27-year-old Lowell man was found dead in the cab of his pickup truck Wednesday morning, the Benton County Sheriff's Office said.

Employees at a convenience store called SWAT Towing of Lowell to report that one of its tow trucks had been parked in front of the store overnight.

The tow company responded and found Anthony George Brown of Lowell dead in the cab of the truck, said Captain Greg Ridler with the Benton County Sheriff's Office.

The sheriff's office responded just before 9 a.m. to investigate.

Ridler said there is no sign of foul play. The initial investigation suggests Brown may have suffered an undiagnosed medical problem. A medical examination may determine a cause of death, Ridler said.

Friends and coworkers told the sheriff's office that Brown had been experiencing health issues.
