Investigators have identified a man found dead in his car Tuesday morning as 33-year-old Rodney Earl Gaines and are asking for the public's help as they work to determine who or what killed him.

Lt. Jack Kennedy, the assistant commander of the Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit, said Gaines was found sitting in his car in an apartment complex at 1919 11th Avenue early Tuesday morning.
