Police have launched a death investigation after a man's body was found inside the trunk of a vehicle Tuesday in northwest Miami-Dade.
Officers responded to a call of a foul odor and flies around a vehicle at around 2:20 p.m. in the 9100 block of NW 22nd Avenue, according to the Miami-Dade Police Department.
Authorities found a man's body inside the trunk and were unable to identify him due to the body's condition, police said.
But family members said the man inside the trunk was Richard Lindsay, a father of four.
"That's my brother," said Jason Lindsay. "I miss him, I love him."
Richard Lindsay described his brother as a calm man who also had a bad habit of gambling.
He said he had not seen his brother for several days but did not report him missing.
Investigators waiting for positive identification of the body.
