What was so suspicious about the parked car to make him stop and check it out?

so he's just driving down the road, sees a car on the side of the road, stops and finds a dead person in the car.

Yeah sounds strange to me. I mean I see parked cars on the side of the road, freeway all the time. But the last thing I am thinking is..."Better stop & make sure everything is OK." What made him stop? What did he see that was off? I need more facts.

It'll be interesting to see what prompted him to pull over and check things out -- how random.

You think it would be on the seedier end of Sunset and not in the Palisades.

So what? My aunt found her sisters body (my other aunt) in her apartment last saturday. She had been lying there dead for 2 weeks. A family member finding another family members body dead is sad, someone finding a stangers body is NOT sad.
