SPARKS, Nev. — Police here are continuing their investigation into the Dec. 1 death of Deborah J. Sayer at a Sparks truck stop and are seeking a tractor-trailer they believe was involved in the incident, but left the scene.

Det. John Franz of the Sparks Police Department said police received a call at 2:24 p.m. Dec. 1 saying that a person was down and bleeding from the head on the north lot of the Alamo Truck Stop.

Officers arrived on scene and found Sayer with severe head trauma.

Police said she was found by a truck driver and no other vehicles were around her.

The preliminary investigation has revealed that she was struck and dragged by a vehicle, which was most likely a semi-tractor.

Franz said witnesses did not see the accident, but report a blue semi-truck with a 53-foot trailer with either green writing or a green design on the trailer last in the area where Sayer was found.

If anyone witnessed the accident, or may recognize the description of the above tractor and trailer, they are being asked to call Sparks Police detectives at (775) 353-2225.
