WOOD RIVER, Ill. (AP) - Authorities in Wood River, Illinois say they've identified the body of a suspected heroin overdose victim as that of a 28-year-old man.

The (Alton) Telegraph reports that Kenneth Harris Jr.'s body was found Tuesday in a car parked in a bay of a car wash in Wood River.

Deputy Police Chief Mickey Sabolo says the investigation points to a heroin overdose as the cause of the man's death, and no foul play is suspected. Authorities say drug paraphernalia was found next to the victim, who Sabolo says appeared to have died alone.

An autopsy was conducted Tuesday, but results weren't released. Authorities are awaiting results of toxicology tests.

Police have identified the two people killed in Tuesday's shooting in the city's Duchtown neighborhood.

St. Louis police say 37-year-old Terence Anderson had been returning house keys to his ex-girlfriend 32-year-old Nichole Haynes around one o'clock Tuesday afternoon in the 4600 block of Tennessee. Police say the two had just broken off their relationship and allegedly began arguing. By the time police arrived at the home, the woman was dead--shot and killed on her front porch. The man's 15-year-old daughter was shot but is expected to survive.

Anderson fled but Chief Sam Dotson says officers caught up with him and cornered him on a one-way street on the other side of town.

"As he began to back up, the suspect pointed a gun out the rearview, out of the rear window of the vehicle. And at that time, the officers that were following the vehicle exited their vehicle and took offensive positions. And fearing that the individual was about to shoot at them, began firing at that suspect."

Anderson was shot and killed by two officers who have been on the force four years.
