DALLAS - An officer discovered a body that appeared to have multiple stab wounds on the floor of a truck cab during a routine traffic stop Monday morning on eastbound Interstate 20, just east of Bonnie View Road, police reported.

Authorities said an officer pulled over the truck, which was driving on the road without a trailer, because the brakes were locking up. As the officer was talking to the driver, he noticed the body, police said.

Upon further investigation, the officer saw visible trauma to the body believed to be multiple stab wounds.

The driver has been taken into custody.
