Baltimore police: 'No obvious signs of trauma' on body found in truck

By Land Line staff | 5/1/2015

A 51-year-old man who was found dead inside of a tractor-trailer showed “no obvious signs of trauma or foul play” according to a release issued by Baltimore police.

The body was found at 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 30, in the cab of a tractor-trailer in the 2500 block of Pennsylvania Ave. Police are awaiting the results of an autopsy, but at this point are not connecting the death to the unrest that has rocked the city since Monday in the wake of the funeral of 25-year-old Freddie Gray.

The release states that officers were called to the area to do a check on the well-being of an individual. The man’s name has not been released. The truck was parked near a CVS pharmacy that was looted and burned in rioting on Monday, according to The Baltimore Sun.
