Not exactly a place to die with dignity.

I have a brother who is this person's age. He was young. It can't be easy for his family right now. Tough.

To the family, I'm sorry for your loss. To the City of Dixon please have the guts to find the total expensis involved in this unfortunate situation and send an invoice for these expensis to Walmart as it is their policy that allows campers in their lots and that it was in there lot that this happened.
