Coroner IDs 27-year-old man found dead behind furniture store on Fairview

The Ada County Coroner’s Office has identified a man found dead behind Mor Furniture near Fairview Avenue and Curtis Road on Sunday morning, according to a press release.

Manuel Dean Allen Mejia, a 27-year-old from Dublin, Calif., was found around 10 a.m. behind the business.

The cause of Mejia’s death isn’t yet clear, according to the coroner’s report. His death is not related to injury but can’t be confirmed until toxicology results return in several weeks.

Emergency dispatchers on Sunday told the Statesman that Mejia’s body was found inside a car, though police have not yet confirmed that detail.

Boise police are still investigating the incident, and on Sunday police spokeswoman Haley Williams said foul play was not suspected.
