OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- More than 100 people have called Oklahoma authorities to report a semi-truck whose driver is wanted for questioning in the death of a prostitute.

A spokeswoman says the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has questioned several drivers, but hasn't found the suspect yet.

The man, whose identity is unknown, is wanted for questioning but is not considered a suspect in the August death of Taddemika McHenrey of Oklahoma City.

Witnesses said they saw McHenrey get into a semi of the same description and never get out. Her body was found several hours later about 50 miles away.

Officials say her death may be related to killings of about ten prostitutes in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas, Mississippi, Pennsylvania and Indiana.
