    Investigators say a body has been found in the trunk of a car several days after the vehicle arrived at a Harris County Sheriff's Office storage lot.

    KPRC-TV reported Thursday that a coroner determined 25-year-old Vittorio Gavin of Galveston was shot several times.

    Authorities say the car, discovered abandoned near a toll road, was connected to a Nov. 5 crime scene. The vehicle was towed last Friday to an impound facility in Humble (UHM'-buhl).

    The car remained at the secure facility until a crime scene unit on Tuesday began processing the vehicle and found the body.

    Officials say the car was being preserved for evidence.
