A Refugio police office found Dennis Heinold, 61, dead behind his vehicle in the 100 block of Dunbar Street.
Justice of the Peace Precinct 1 Lorraine Lopez held an inquest and ordered an autopsy, said John Rivera, a clerk in Lopez's office.
Heinold died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to a story in the Refugio County Press.
