The Story County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death of a Missouri truck driver, who was found dead at the I-35 rest stop south of Story City last Wednesday night (Jan. 10). A 51 year old male was found unresponsive in his truck after a Missouri police department contacted Iowa officials about a truck driver who was late reporting in. Authorities then traced his whereabouts using the man’s cellphone to the rest area location.
The driver’s name, Raymond Edward Starr, was released yesterday (Tuesday). Foul play is not suspected, as the investigation is nearly complete.
