Officials have identified the body of a man found inside a burning car on Jacobs Road late Feb. 27.

The death of David Collins, 26, of Milan Avenue in Norwalk, was ruled a suicide earlier this week, Huron County Chief Deputy Ted Patrick said.

Collins’s identity was revealed through dental records, Patrick said.

At about 9 p.m. Feb. 27, officials received two emergency calls about the car fire. When firefighters and investigators arrived at the scene, they found a body in the backseat, Patrick previously said.

Patrick said some evidence found at the scene, coupled with information they received from family members, aligned with the suicide ruling.

Investigators are still awaiting toxicology reports and Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation reports.

Officials have yet to determine how the fire began, Patrick said.

Yes true, More Americans now die of suicide than from car accidents, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

How is this the President's fault? I think you have a serious man crush on the guy. Get over it, he's married!

The increase in suicides is just as much Obama's fault as the current economic mess is George W. Bush's fault. And yes, I mean EXACTLY what that sentence says. Let's see if YOU can figure it out...

The thought of someone feeling so horribly that they choose to leave this world like this is unimaginable. Prayers for this family.

Depression is an invisible illness, no one in their right mind would do this to themselves. Have a heart and remember the ppl affected by this. My thoughts and prayers to all.

My sympathies to the family and friends of this poor man. He must have suffered for some time.

How dare you people argue politics in the face of this death as if it were nothing. There is no excuse for your ignorance and thoughtlessness at all.
