Menlo Park: Man, 25, found dead in car

Initial investigation suggests accidental overdose

After someone spotted a man slumped over in a parked BMW and called the Menlo Park police on Tuesday morning, officers arrived to find the body of 25-year-old Christopher Shubert, according to the report.

Emergency responders arrived at the scene in the 100 block of Bay Road around 11 a.m. on May 27, the report said. They found prescription medication in the car; the preliminary investigation suggests that Mr. Shubert may have died from an accidental overdose of the medication.

The police ask that anyone with information call Detective Sgt. Sharon Kaufman at 330-6343, or contact the anonymous tip line at 330-6395.

The Almanac will update this story as more information becomes available.
