Dallas police just sent word: First thing this morning, the store manager opening up the CVS Pharmacy on E. Northwest Highway -- where Plano Road turns into E. Lake Highlands Drive -- found a dead man in the bathroom. Hell of a way to start the day. DPD explains:
Drug paraphernalia, including a syringe, was found near the body. Evidence suggests the deceased may have been in the restroom facility overnight. The pharmacy section of the store had been secured at 6:00 p.m. Sunday, and there was no evidence of intrusion there. Internal alarms at the pharmacy or elsewhere in the store did not go off overnight either. There is no identification of the deceased at this time. Homicide and crime scene detectives are investigating.
