MILLSBORO, Del. (AP) - Delaware State Police say the driver of a taxicab was found dead in his vehicle parked on the shoulder of a road in Millsboro.

Police say a passer-by called troopers and reported the suspicious taxicab around 10 p.m. Wednesday. Troopers found 45-year-old William Toomey of Millsboro dead inside the passenger compartment. Toomey was a driver employed by Delaware Beach Taxi.

Troopers say Toomey's death is a homicide. Police say they will not release the cause or manner of death to avoid compromising the investigation.
