(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Police are investigating the death of trucker found dead in the cab of his truck at an Oklahoma City truck stop.

Sergeant Mike Klika says 35-year-old Julie Ann Pacheco has been taken into custody on a murder complaint after she led police to the victim, who was found at the Pilot Truck stop near Reno and Eastern streets.

The victim's name has not been released. Klika says the man was from out of town.

Klika says the woman got on the C-B radio and asked for help and another trucker called 9-1-1 at about 6 yesterday morning.

Police are still investigating Pacheco's relationship with the victim. Klika says the two were not traveling together, but had spent the early morning hours together.

Police are waiting on a medical examiner's report to determine the cause of death.
