Authorities investigating man found dead in van

COLUMBIA STATION — The death of a man found in a van Saturday in a driveway off state Route 252 by the Medina County line is being investigated as a possible homicide.

Wayne Soos, 50, address unavailable, was found facedown in the back of his white 1995 Chevrolet van, according to Dr. Stephen Evans, Lorain County coroner. Evans said a resident saw the van in a neighbor’s driveway around 8 a.m. and found Soos. The neighbor said the van had not been in the driveway when he went to bed around 11 p.m.

Autopsy results are not available yet, but Evans said Soos was not shot or stabbed.

“We’ll probably have more information in the next couple days,” Evans said.
