A missing Fort Wayne man was found dead inside his vehicle parked at a Gas City truck stop Monday and authorities say he apparently died of natural causes.
The “Chronicle-Tribune” reports the body of 41-year old Jon Christopher Wenger was found inside his car that had been parked at the McClure’s Truck Stop at I-69 and State Road 22. His family reported him missing after he failed to return from a trip to the Hoosier Park Casino in Anderson on Friday.
Grant County Coroner Stephan Dorsey said Wenger died from apparent complications due to uncontrolled diabetes. Dorsey said Wenger had been hospitalized several times for the condition and foul play was not suspected in his death.
