    Man found dead in tractor trailer near burned CVS

    A 51-year-old man was found dead in the cab of a tractor trailer, about a block away from where a crowd of police, protesters and reporters gathered just before the citywide curfew went into effect Thursday night, police said.lRelatedBALTIMORE CITYFive shot Thursday as violence in west Baltimore surgesSEE ALL RELATED

    The man was not identified, and police labeled his death "suspicious." Officers found the body, which showed no obvious signs of trauma or foul play, in the 2500 block of Pennsylvania Ave. at about 9:30 p.m., police said.

    So what do y'all make of this? Since the whole Freddie Grey thing is now being driven by wild speculation, does anyone think this is related? And if it is, what does that say about policing in the area? Sounds awfully safe when cops time is diverted to handle other things doesn't it....?

    Carbon monoxide poisoning while he slept. Most of the time they leave the engine running and some sort of heat or a/c on. If it was an older semi as well. Not a lot of information yet.

    Without any further information, I'd say 51 year old men, particularly those in occupations like long distance truck driving, die of heart attacks every day. Without any obvious signs of foul play or trauma, natural cause death is likely.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    I was just thinking about coming back and commenting that their lifestyle and diet could easily lead to heart attack, also many are meth heads and/or take other intense stimulants that could also lead to a "natural" death by heart attack.

    Not anymore they don't....Most, are equipped today with separate APU units that provide heat, and AC...Truck engines running all night is a thing of the past.

    We shall have to wait and see, but Homocide dectives were on the scene last night, and labeled the death "suspicious".... So, I guess my point is, if we have to wait for the facts about this truck driver, then why not in Grey's death? Did the thugs kill him?

    What the heck is a 'CVS'?

    Or do you mean CV's (combat vehicle)?

    What in the hell are you talking about? Where do you get your information? From Smokey and the Bandit? Good grief....Truck drivers are regulated and tested tougher than Airline pilots....Good god, please don't smear us.

    Really, that's odd because when I travel I park at truck stops, and with my trailer I park between two rigs, and I just love that they run all night because it makes the ground rumble a bit and feel so lovely like a super gentle massage bed. So whatever you believe, or whatever they're supposed to be doing, they're running their engines a bunch. Moreso in the colder months, but some even in the warmer.

    She did say older semis though.
