DURANT, Okla. (KTEN) — Durant police are investigating after a grim discovery in a parked vehicle outside the Walmart on West Main Street last Friday afternoon.

"An officer was passing by and was flagged down by a reported party that they had found a male deceased inside his car," said Detective Brandon Mitchell. "The medical examiner was called in, and it was confirmed he was a Choctaw Nation citizen, so Choctaw Police were also called."

Mitchell said the death of the 24-year-old unnamed individual remains under investigation, and that police expect to receive a ruling from the medical examiner's office soon.
