Local News

A man’s body was found in a tractor-trailer, parked at a Sheetz in Jackson Twp., Cambria County.

A state trooper stopped at the store right off Route 22 around 11 a.m. Tuesday.

An employee told the trooper the truck had been parked there for days. That’s when the man’s body was discovered in the truck’s cab.

“We have a male in his 30’s, early 40’s, found inside the cab part of the vehicle. There was drug paraphernalia found,” said Cambria County Coroner Jeff Lees.

The Cambria County coroner’s office is working with police on the investigation. They will conduct an autopsy to determine the exact cause and manner of death.

Lees said the man’s death does not appear suspicious at this time.
