    He was not working at the time, police said.

    “This is not a case of him operating as a Lyft driver,” Prince George’s County Police Cpl. Lamar Robinson said.

    Timothy Sherod's body was found behind the wheel of the Dodge by a neighbor on her way to work Monday morning.

    Police combed through video from the multitude of surveillance cameras in the well-kept neighborhood but are still working to find a motive and suspect.

    He idolized his dad, went to work with him at Amtrak and took care of him when he got sick.

    “All I want to know is who did this to my boy,” Henry Sherod said tearfully.
