PHILADELPHIA - Philadelphia police say a man has been found stabbed to death outside of a Wawa in South Philadelphia.
Police say the stabbing happened early Monday on South Columbus Boulevard.
According to authorities, a customer thought the victim, later identified as Roger B. Segal, was asleep at the time. When police arrived, they found that Segal had been stabbed to death.
Segal's car was running and his foot was still firmly on the brake. According to authorities, the 49-year-old man was stabbed once in the stomach.
The circumstances surrounding the stabbing remain uncertain as well, according to investigators. A weapon was not found at the scene and no arrests have been made at this time.
Wawa did not issue a formal statement, but a spokesperson told FOX 29's Hank Flynn the company is working with police on the active investigation.
The plaza where the Wawa sits also features numerous shops, a gas station and a car wash.
In October, one man was shot and killed in the plaza. That case also remains under investigation.
