EIGHT BODIES FOUND IN TRUCK IN TEXAS PARKING LOT
Washington, US - Eight persons were found dead on Sunday inside a truck in a Walmart parking lot in San Antonio, Texas in what police said appeared to be ‘human trafficking crime’.
Another 28 people were injured - 20 of them severely - and were being treated at seven local hospitals, San Antonio police chief William McManus and fire chief Charles Hood told reporters.
The police chief said the group included children, but later told CNN that the eight dead were men. He said the truck driver had been arrested.
“We got a call from a Walmart employee about a welfare check in a tractortrailer that was parked on the lot here,” McManus told a news conference.
The employee returned with the water and then called the police who ‘found eight persons dead in the back of that trailer,’ the police chief said.
