Police in Queens, New York, might be a little more vigilant from now on about knocking on the window of any vehicle they can't see inside; they recently, according to reports, issued a parking ticket to the owner of a Jeep Cherokee—as the owner lay dead in the vehicle.

The 21-year-old driver, who had recently been in rehab for pill abuse, was found, lifeless and cold, Tuesday morning in front of the friend's house—which the driver had 'left' hours before.

Based on the timeline, it was suspected, the former Jeep owner had been issued the ticket when already dead.

A police source explained to the New York Daily News that heavily tinted windows made it hard to see inside.
