Ingalls employee found dead in parking lot

PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) - An Ingalls Shipbuilding employee was found dead in his vehicle Tuesday morning.

"It appears the gentleman got off work yesterday, got in his truck and it looks like he had a heart attack," said Sgt. Doug Adams with the Pascagoula Police Department.

Adams reports family members of Santos Morales, 56, went to look for him when he didn't come home after work Monday night. Morales was discovered early Tuesday morning.

There is no foul play suspected at this time. Jackson County Deputy Coroner Jason Moody said an autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday, and that's when an official cause of death will be determined.
