Van held apparent suicide victim in Clearwater

CLEARWATER — A man found dead inside an older model white Ford work van at 9:30 a.m. today in the parking lot of Advance Auto Parts at 22991 U.S. 19 N appears to have committed suicide, Clearwater police say.

"There are no signs of criminal activity,'' said Clearwater public safety spokeswoman Elizabeth Watts.

The man was identified as Ronnie White, 28, of Safety Harbor.

Watts would give no further details. There will be an autopsy to determine the cause of death.

Tony Martinez, who works at a gas station next door to the parking lot, said the van had been parked in the spot all night.
