      Officers were called to the Tulsa rock quarry at 129th East Avenue and 46th Street North Saturday morning at 6 a.m. after a passerby reported seeing a wheel on top of some rocks.

      Upon investigating, officers found a deceased white male in a white pickup truck that had reportedly driven up over the boulders and crashed there.

      Officers believe the man, identified as John Franklin Bowers, 56, had been there for a while.
