KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - We've been working through the night to learn new information about a suspicious death in Kalamazoo and police have now identified the man.

Officers say that Jayme Robert Earle, a 26 year old Richland resident, was the man who was found dead in a parked truck.

Friday morning we got the chance to speak off camera with the person who found the body. He tells us there were two tickets on the front of the pick-up truck he was found in and those tickets were two days old.

The truck was parked illegally in a no parking lane on Stewart Avenue near West Main.

We are told it had been there at least two days.

Police tell us Earle had been dead for some time, but they are waiting on autopsy results to learn more about how and when he died. The report is expected to take a minimum of six to eight weeks.

At this point police are calling the death suspicious. Police have confirmed that a private company, Parking Services, did put two tickets on the vehicle, one at 2:40 am on the sixth and another at 2:23 on the seventh.

We are working to get more information on this suspicious death.
