Autopsy: Homeless Man Was Run Over

Sponsored by:

A follow up now to a story we brought you earlier this week.

The Modesto Police Department has confirmed that a homeless man found dead in the drive-thru of an abandoned business was run over by a car.

Detectives say it looks like 62-year-old Charles Varner of Modesto was in a makeshift bed on the 1700 block of Prescott Road.

A police autopsy showed Varner died from blunt force trauma to the head.

Police believe the driver may not even have known they hit a person, but they´d like to speak with the involved driver and complete the investigation.

Anyone with information in the case is asked to contact Modesto Police.
