An odd case of not only ‘whodunnit’ but also ‘whatdunnit’ and ‘wheredunnit’ has authorities scratching their heads. One police investigator said that the case of the dead body on top of a semi’s trailer is the weirdest thing he’s seen in 20 years on the job.
At around 6:00am on Thursday morning, a mail carrier pulled his rig into a USPS building in Grand Junction, CO. A short time later, an employee noticed what they thought was a man asleep on top of the trailer.
When the police arrived, they found that the man was deceased. But the driver of the vehicle had no idea how the man got there. When police looked into it, it turned out that the trailer had been hauled by a different rig from Kansas overnight. The trailer then was dropped in Glenwood Springs, hooked up to another rig, and continued on to Grand Junction.
The trucker who drove the leg from Kansas told police that he had heard a loud noise as he was passing under an overpass on I-70 near Wheat Ridge, just outside of Denver. That’s some 240 miles away from Grand Junction along winding mountain highways the whole way.
Wheat Ridge Police are handling the investigation.
