PROSSER, Wash. -- Several residents in Prosser called police after finding a dead man under a tree. Neighbors say 52-year-old Gary Dayko was evicted from his home several months ago and was living under a bridge at a park. It is across the street from where his old house was on Grant Avenue and 10th street.
The man's neighbor says she came outside and saw police surrounding the pine tree Tuesday morning where Gary was sitting.
Anna Boggs said, "I had told a fireman about him on Sunday, that he was living under the bridge. And he said they would go check on him to make sure he was ok."
police say it appears he died from natural causes.
