Default NYC Cops Repeatedly Ticket Parked Dead Guy

NYC Woman Believes Her Father Lay Dead Inside His Car For Weeks While Police Wrote Tickets Over And Over

NEW YORK (CBS) ― A New York City woman said her father apparently lay dead for weeks in a minivan while police repeatedly left parking tickets on the vehicle, seen here, below the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway underpass.
Police made a gruesome discovery earlier this week while getting ready to tow a heavily-ticketed van a decomposed body in the back seat.

It was that of a missing man, and now his family wants to know to how officers could ticket the vehicle numerous times -- and never notice what was inside.

Jennifer Morales, who didn't want her face filmed by CBS 2 HD cameras, wondered how her father's body could go unnoticed for so long.

"I'm shocked. I'm surprised, um...," Morales said.

The daughter of 58-year-old George Morales wants everyone to remember her handyman father in a different way, not as a decomposed body found in a van under the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway on Wednesday. He'd been dead a month, in a van with four parking tickets.

"If you see an abandoned vehicle, you don't report it? You wait a month?" Jennifer Morales wondered.

Morales' daughter said her father left their apartment in Washington Heights on May 5 in a van owned by a friend. George Morales was headed for Long Island, but he just vanished.

His daughter suspects George Morales, who suffered from diabetes and heart problems, may have felt ill, and pulled off the road for a nap. A window was cracked. The odor became overpowering. After the car was ticketed each Monday for a month, a marshal, about to tow the van, noticed a body in the back seat.

"If you see a car has already three to four tickets and you just slabbing more, at least call 9-1-1 and say there's a car here that's not moving," Jennifer Morales said.

When he was found, his daughter said, he was not covered with a blanket or coat, but was in plain view of anyone who looked inside. She wondered: what if there was a person inside a car who was ill and needed help?

Jennifer Morales said it should be a lesson to all traffic agents and police officers: don't ticket without looking inside.

The NYC Medical Examiner's office has told the family it appears George Morales died of a heart attack. There was no word from police as to why tickets were repeatedly issued without taking a look inside.

Uh... A combination of tinted windows and a huge number of parked cars that get ticketed without dead people in them?

Yup; there's really no reason to look in a car when writing a ticket.

You're going to tell me that a crack of the window letting out that smell, would not at the very least make someone suspect something. I know it's NYC but stupidity and not giving a damn reigns in this city. Especially those ticket agents. They don't care and have the nastiest attitudes as if someone forced them to be on this earth.

This is pathetic but hey.. it's NY, which is why I no longer live in this dump.

this doesnt surprise me.... 3/4 of those douchers dont speak english that write the tickets.... those meter-maids are a multi million dollar money maker for the city.... end of story.... they dont care.... i do work in the city once in a while and parked legal or not, i get a ticket.... Ive been parked in a loading zone working, and got a ticket for being parked there...
I had 2 of my workers in the front seats while i asked the concierge where the service entrance is so i can park near it... I was gone for 1 minute.. got a ticket.... he was waiting behind me for me to get out.....
I was also parked in a truck loading/unloading zone IN THE TRUCK UNLOADING.... he didnt see me for the split second he looked in the back..... I saw him and said.. Im HERE WORKING.... oh. i already started to write the ticket... such bull****.... i have no respect for those tools....

My last ticket i got i laughed at the tool and said he was a joke.... in my eyes, if you dont carry a gun (or can carry), you arent a cop....

Wow, thanks for a long bunch of crap noone asked to hear.

They should be looking inside the vehicle when a ticket is issued at the very least for their own safety so yeah i would put most of the blame on them for not seeing the guy, not like it would have made a difference anyway in this situation but this is such a routine thing writing parking tickets that it is understandable that they didnt see him in the back seat. They just need to break out of their routine and be more attentive.

Oh sorry let me fix that for you. Stop parking illegally and you wont get a ticket if you do and you feel you didnt deserve it take it to court. Are you bright enough to understand that. No one asked to hear about your inability to understand a no parking sign.

Thanks for adding to this thread.
I think the initial summary of your first response was dead-on....

Well you would think that a van sitting under a pair of bridges with heavy traffic might be a vehicle of interest in NYC...
