Investigators: Gibson truck may have been used in fourth murder

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Investigators say a truck found in Nebraska that once belonged to accused serial killer William Clyde Gibson may have been used in the murder of a man in 2002.

The Stanton County Sheriff's Office in Nebraska says that victim has yet to be identified.

Investigators believe the truck was involved in the murders of two women in Indiana in 2002. They believe at least one woman was murdered inside the truck and that the truck was used to dispose of her body.  Stanton County Sheriff Mike Unger says the truck is a 2000 Toyota Tundra, but he will not release the color of the vehicle. 

Gibson remains in custody at the jail in Floyd County, Indiana. He's charged with murdering three women -- Karen Hodella, who he allegedly killed in 2002; a friend of his mother -- Christine Whitis -- who was found dead in his garage in April of 2012; and Stephanie Kirk, who went missing in late March.

Kirk's body was later found buried in Gibson's backyard.

The pickup truck was originally stolen in 2002 from a Louisville car dealership. It changed hands several times before police located it in Nebraska.  Unger says investigators processed the truck in Nebraska and that's where it remains. It is back with the owners who had no idea it may have been involved in some crimes.
