An Alabaster teen was found dead in the parking lot of a Columbus, Ga. CVS Pharmacy last Friday, according to Columbus police.

Lt. John McMichael of the Columbus Police Department said Steven Bradley Foster, 17, was found dead in a 2002 Ford Escape in the parking lot of a CVS at 1367 Double Churches Road in Columbus. The body was found at about 3:30 a.m. on June 14, he said.

McMichael said the body had been in the car “for a while,” but he didn’t know exactly how long.

He said there was no evidence of foul play, but the body had been sent for an autopsy.

Foster’s father, Joe, told the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer that his son had run away and had been gone for “about a week” with no contact.
