The Nueces County Medical Examiner's Office has released the identity of a man whose body was found in a car last week.

The Corpus Christi Police Department made the discovery on the city's west side Wednesday morning in the 1400 block of 15th Street.

A homeowner off 15th Street called police after she noticed what appeared to be a body inside of an abandoned car.

Officials identified the body as 69-year-old Arnold Zertuche.

Investigators added he died of natural causes.
