Metropolis received a phone call for a corpse found in the back alley of 724 N.9th Street shortly before 10 pm on October 16.
According to police, the man was probably asleep when a stranger car was driving south in the alley and driving over him.

The second vehicle is described as a dark-colored pickup truck of the unknown year.
