PENNSBURY, Pa. — A dead body in a car — and a note warning people not to come near — kept neighbors guessing and a street barricaded for hours Monday as emergency vehicles and personnel in white hazmat suits converged on a spot in Pennsbury Township, Chester County.
Patty Mains, a spokeswoman for Chester County's Department of Emergency Services, said a 911 call about 12:30 p.m. suggested that a man's body inside a car was a result of "chemical suicide." The car was on Hillendale Road.
