MALONE - Toxicology results show that a Tupper Lake man who was found dead in a stolen car Malone on Nov. 29 died of a morphine overdose, according to Malone Village Police Chief Christopher Premo.

The body of Brad Eggsware, 25, was found that day by a K-Mart employee who noticed a 2004 Pontiac Vibe had not moved from the same spot for several days. Premo said the car, which had been reported stolen on Nov. 26, also contained drug paraphernalia.

Police believe Eggsware had been at a gathering in Tupper Lake when he left for unknown reasons, trudged through the woods and stole the car from a neighbor, who Premo would only identify as a female. She has since gotten the car back, according to the Malone police chief.

The discovery of Eggsware’s body prompted a swarm of law enforcement to descend upon the K-Mart parking lot; at least seven state and local police vehicles and around 10 officers were at the scene that day. Premo said the state police sent in a forensic investigation unit to make sure there were no signs of foul play.

At the time of his death, Eggsware was on parole for his role in the St. Patrick’s Day 2006 gang beating of Tupper Lake Village Police officer Jason Amell, who was trying to arrest him for a parole violation. He had been on conditional release for an unrelated attempted burglary charge.
