POQUOSON, Va. (WAVY) — Detectives now believe someone else may have been driving a truck that a man was found dead inside earlier this month. 

Poquoson police said officers were dispatched to Locust Run the morning of Feb. 4 for a report about someone who was unconcious inside of a pickup truck.

Police said the man, 38-year-old Carl A. Emmett, was pronounced dead at the scene.

In a news release Thursday, police said an examination of the scene has led detectives to believe someone other than Emmett was driving the truck when it was parked on Locust Run.

The police department is asking for help identifying anyone who may have had contact with Emmett between Feb. 1 and 2. Anyone with information is asked to call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
