Detectives spent hours gathering evidence at the scene late Wednesday afternoon.
It was not clear who called for the tow truck, but it was towed from the Advance Auto Parts about a half mile down the road. The manager there says he didn't see anything suspicious.
"I come in every morning here between 6:30 and 7 a.m.," said Kevin Renaud. "I would have noticed it."
