Police believe a man was murdered outside a truck stop in southern Dallas.
His body was found lying at the edge of the parking lot at the USA Travel Center in the 8100 block of Lancaster Road. Officers say when they discovered the victim around 2:25 a.m. there was obvious trauma to his body.
Earlier in the night, the man was seen pumping diesel into a five gallon bucket after running out of gas on the LBJ Freeway. Shortly after filling up the bucket a surveillance camera spotted him lying in the parking lot.
The video is being reviewed by detectives in hopes of gaining a suspect.
