State police have identified a Sussex County cab driver found dead in his cab Wednesday night and classified his death as a murder.

Police say 45-year-old William Toomey's body was found in the cab on the shoulder of Country Living Road in Millsboro.

Police aren't saying how Toomey was killed, but a fellow cabbie wants answers.

"We're all trying to figure out what he did. I know that he told a coworker he was going home, and he lives in Long Neck. So by the time he left the beach area to somewhere near long neck, something diverted him whether he was carjacked or picked somebody up along the road," Barbara told our sister station Delaware 105.9
