Body found at Pilot Plaza Center


An investigation is underway after the body of a man is discovered at a truck stop last night.

The incident happened at the pilot travel plaza on Highway 43. Joplin police say a transient man was in an unauthorized area, found between a curb and the wheels of a semi tractor trailer — possibly seeking shelter from the cold weather.

They say he had been there for hours between the incident and the discovery of his remains. JPD is investigating the incident, but they do not believe there was any foul play.
