Man found dead, his prized Towncar missing from Sligh Ave. home

- The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office says it is looking for a white, 1990 Lincoln Towncar missing from a home where a man's body was found Thursday. 

Detectives at the scene on Sligh Avenue called the man's death suspicious.

The body was found at a trailer home at 7702 Sligh Avenue East just before 6 p.m. Thursday.

HCSO said there were signs of foul play in the home. A search warrant had been requested so detectives and crime unit investigators could go into the scene.

HCSO said the victim was possessive of his vehicle, a white, 1990 Lincoln Towncar, (previously reported to be a Continental), four-door, with a tan vinyl top and Florida handicapped tag ZC73V.

The man's family members told detectives the vehicle is in "extremely good condition." It was last seen at the residence around 11 a.m.

HCSO said investigators had no information about who may be driving the vehicle. They said anyone who spots it should not approach the vehicle or person who may be inside. 

The medical examiner would pick up the case in the morning to determine a cause of death.
