LOCKPORT, N.Y. (WHEC) — Deputies in Niagara, Monroe and Wayne counties are investigating after a man's body was found in a pickup truck in Niagara County.

Niagara County Sheriff James Voutour says a woman left her home on Ridge Road in Ontario, Wayne County Friday morning to go on a camping trip.


After making a brief stop in Monroe County, she stopped at the Tops store in Lockport. After she finished shopping around 10:30 a.m., Voutour said that she opened the back of her pickup truck to put her groceries away, and found an unresponsive man in the bed of her pickup truck.

Voutour said that it appears that the man's body had been in her truck for a few days.

The man's identity has not yet been released.

Voutour told News10NBC's affiliate in Buffalo the woman did not know the man and that she was extremely shaken up by what she had found. She is cooperating with law enforcement.
