SAN ANTONIO -

San Antonio police homicide investigators are searching for clues after a man’s body was found in the cargo area of an SUV parked alongside the curb in the 700 block of 35th Street early Thursday morning.

They report the body showed no visible signs of trauma.

Residents in the area told police they were awakened by dogs barking at about 4 a.m. They noticed the car parked in front of their home and called police after spotting the body in the vehicle.

Detectives say the vehicle was registered to a woman who listed her address as an apartment complex several miles away.

As of noon on Thursday, police had not identified the victim.
