Family and friends of truck driver Frank A. Dolce Jr. are
offering a reward for information leading to the arrest of the person who
killed the 42-year-old truck driver on Valentine’s Day at a restaurant in
A driver for Ace Transportation out of Lafayette, LA, Dolce
was shot in the head at about 8 p.m. Feb. 14 at the Love’s truck stop on
Interstate 95 at Exit 4 in Skippers, VA. A 9-millimeter gun was used. Fellow
truckers may know Dolce by his CB handle, “Roustabout.”
Police said this was Dolce’s first trip out in a new truck
and it appeared he parked at the Love’s to rearrange his chains and binders.
Dolce’s cousin and OOIDA member Debra Jacobs of Bolton, NC, told Land Line that Dolce died in the driver’s seat of his truck sometime in the evening hours
on Valentine’s Day, but his body was not discovered until about 2 a.m. Feb. 15.
His wife reported that he had called to wake her up to go to
work. Police said his gloves were found on the step of the truck and it was
obvious that he had been working with his chains and binders, partly because
the doors on his headache rack and the side boxes on the truck were open.
Dolce was driving a red 2005 Kenworth T800 with a flatbed
trailer loaded with two 20-foot-long NSCSA containers. Officials with the
Greensville County, VA, Sheriff’s Department said they have no leads and no
motives for the murder.
Anyone with information should call Sgt. C.D. Robinson of
the Greensville County Sheriff’s Department at (434) 348-4265 or (434)
