VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) — The body of a man found inside an 18-wheeler, parked at a weigh station on Interstate 20 westbound in Warren County, has been identified.

WLBT-TV reports Mississippi Highway Patrol and the Warren County Sheriff's Department responded to the call Tuesday to check out a suspicious vehicle that had not moved all day.

The county coroner's office identified the man Wednesday in the truck as 53-year-old Tommy Leford, of Trenton, Georgia.

Leford was found in the truck's sleeping compartment. Authorities say foul play is not suspected but has not been ruled out. The body was taken to the state crime lab for an autopsy.
