A body that was found inside a car in Franklin County Thursday afternoon has been identified.

The dead man has been identified as Brian G. Scott, 43, of Bourbon. 

Authorities say a mailman noticed a car parked on Parshall Road near Sullivan and an odor emitting from the car.

When a deputy arrived, he found a body in the trunk. The body was taken to the St. Louis County Medical Examiner’s Office.

The car did not belong to Scott, police say. Scott was last seen on the evening of October 15, and police are looking for info on his death, which has been ruled suspicious.

A cause of death has not yet been determined. If you have any information on Scott, call the Franklin County Sheriff's Office at 636-583-2560.
