Man found dead after apparent kidnapping near DFW Airport

DALLAS (AP) — A 42-year-old man who was apparently kidnapped from a gas station near the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport has died after being found unconscious a short distance away.

Airport spokesman David Magana says the unidentified man was standing in a gas station convenience store on the south end of the airport Thursday afternoon when he saw several suspects breaking into his rental car.

Magana says the man ran out and confronted the people, who forced him into another vehicle and drove off. Investigators believe the incident wasn’t a random act, and that the victim was likely followed to the gas station.

The man was found unconscious two miles away in Irving. He was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

No arrests have been made. An investigation is ongoing.
