ADVANCE, MO (KFVS) -

What was found in the McDonald's parking lot in Advance on Wednesday morning continues to be the talk of the town.

Sean Crow, 34, of Bernie was found dead in a red pickup truck in the parking lot of the McDonald's on Highway 25.

Stoddard County Sheriff Carl Hefner says his office received a 911 call around 11:30 a.m. that day.

Hefner says they are investigating the death as suspicious.

Autopsy results have not been released.

The Major Case Squad has been called in to investigate.

Authorities say Crow recently was living in Cape Girardeau, but also had a Bernie address.

Family members tell Heartland News that Crow never met a stranger, and would help anyone who needed it.

Crow was a graduate of Bernie High School, and still has many friends in the area.

"It's just such a shock, didn't expect this," said Adam Gordon-Friend of Crow.

Gordon says he hopes authorities get to the bottom of what happened, especially for the family's sake.

He's just trying to focus on the good memories.

"Was just a fun guy to be around, very outgoing, and was the life of the party, " said Gordon.

Visitation for Sean Crow is set for noon until time of service at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Rainey-Mathis Funeral Home in Dexter.
