Washington (DC): An Indian physician, Dr. Ramesh Kumar, was found dead in a car in Detroit, Michigan. He was 32.

Kumar is the third Indian American to be killed in just 24 hours. A techie couple was killed in San Jose on Wednesday night.

The police found Kumara��s body in the passenger seat in his car at a rest area on the highway, a few hours after they received a complaint from Kumara��s father, Dr Narendra Kumar, a former president of the American Association of Indian Origin or AAIO.

On Thursday, when Dr Mani Menon, Ramesha��s colleague, called Narendra about his son not showing up at Henry Ford Hospital, where Ramesh was a resident in urology, Narendra tried to contact his son.

After multiple calls and texts to his sona��s phone had gone unanswered, Narendra headed to his sona��s apartment. Finding the apartment empty, he alerted police, who wanted him to wait since his son had been missing only for a few hours.

The police found Ramesha��s car at 5 pm on Thursday, and by 10:30 pm the body was identified. An autopsy was conducted on Friday.

The family doesna��t think it was a hate crime, as per reports. The private funeral service will be held on Monday.
