A 46-year-old Houston man was found dead Thursday morning outside a CEFCO gas station in Riesel, police reported.

Riesel Police Chief Danny Krumnow identified the man as Patrick Saunders.

Officers were dispatched to the gas station, 201 W. Frederick St., at about 8:30 a.m. on a call about a man who was asleep in a car and not walking up.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene, Krumnow said.

He said foul play is not suspected, but an autopsy is being conducted to determine the cause of death.
