Man Killed while Walking along Pike County Road
BOWLING GREEN (AP) - A truck driver from Ohio is being questioned in the death of a northeast Missouri man who was struck while walking along a highway.
The victim is 49-year-old Kevin Shipley of Shelbina. His body was found Tuesday morning on the shoulder of U.S. 61 in Pike County. Authorities determined he had been struck by a truck nearly
five hours before the body was found.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that police talked to people and went to truck stops, eventually tracking down a truck driver from Defiance, Ohio. The Ohio State Police questioned the man and collected evidence, but it wasn't immediately clear if he was arrested.
