SABATTUS — Police responding to a “well-being check” for a man living out of his car Monday night found Daniel Dennis, 61, deceased in the rear seat of his car parked in front of his family’s home on Depot Street, according to a police statement.

The caller who requested the check told police that his friend Dennis had been parked on Depot Street, living in his car, according to Police Chief Gary Baillargeon.

Dennis’ friends and family told police he had some serious medical issues and had refused to go to a homeless shelter or to receive assistance. They said he would rather live in his vehicle.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner is investigating Dennis’ death to determine the exact cause, Sabattus police reported.
