Man Found Shot to Death in Truck
JOURNAL STAFF REPORT
A man who police say had been shot several times was found dead last night in a pickup truck in the 1600 block of East 23rd Street.
Sgt. J.R. Moser of the Winston-Salem Police Department said that Curtis Dean Powell, 30, of 3717 Prospect Drive was found dead in the truck after paramedics responded to a report of an accident about 8:30.
Lt. M.L. Branscome of the Winston-Salem Police Department said that the paramedics found several bullet wounds when they began unbuttoning Powell's shirt to examine him.
Lt. M.V. McCoy said police believe that Powell, who was found on the driver's side, was shot by someone who was with him in the truck because of the placement of the bullet wounds and the absence of bullet holes on the outside of the truck.
Moser said that the truck did not belong to Powell.
The truck could be seen last night in bushes between 1631 and1633 E. 23rd St. Police used dogs to search the area.
