CU employees discover body in repossessed truck
EVANSVILLE, Ind. (2/22/12)--Employees at a credit union in Evansville, Ind., got a shock Thursday when they opened a repossessed truck's hardshell cover and found the body of the truck's owner.

The truck had been in the parking lot of the Sterling United FCU since being towed there on Feb. 3 (The Tribune-Star Feb. 18 and 14news.com Feb. 17).

The dead man, Richard A. Fulkerson II, 38, of Evansville, had been sought by police in connection with a Jan. 10 attack on an Evansville woman. His truck was found apparently abandoned in Henderson, Ky., on Jan. 11. Officers did not search the bed of the truck because Fulkerson had not been listed as missing. They had it towed back to Evansville before being repossessed and taken to the credit union earlier this month.

Police said it looked like Fulkerson slept in the back of the truck. An autopsy will be performed to determine whether the cause of death was an overdose, said Evansville Police Chief Billy Bolin.
