    Police are searching for the killer of a truck driver found dead at a travel center in Dallas.

    Dallas police found a man lying dead at the edge of the USA Travel Center parking lot at 2:25 a.m. Wednesday morning.

    Police say there is obvious trauma to the body and they are treating the incident as a homicide.

    Detectives say the victim's 18-wheeler had run out of fuel on Interstate 635 at Lancaster Road. The man was seen pumping diesel fuel into a five-gallon bucket at the truck stop.

    The man paid for the fuel and started walking back toward his vehicle, but was seen lying in the parking lot shortly after leaving by a security officer.

    Investigators are reviewing video from surveillance cameras to gather more suspect information.
