Trucker Accused of Kidnapping Woman in Montgomery

LOXLEY, Ala. (AP) - A Missouri man has been charged in coastal Alabama with kidnapping a woman found nude and beaten inside his truck cab at a truck stop off Interstate 10.

47-year-old Roy Scott Stillwell of Hartville was arrested Tuesday after the woman used the truck horn to attract other drivers about 4 p.m. while Stillwell was inside Love's Travel Stop on Alabama 59, just north of I-10.

The woman, in her 20s, apparently was kidnapped in Montgomery, but Baldwin County Sheriff's spokesman Major Anthony Lowery declined to release additional information. Stillwell is scheduled to appear at a 1 p.m. bond hearing in Bay Minette.

Lowery said additional charges of rape and sodomy are possible.

Federal authorities joined the investigation because the truck was involved in interstate travel.

Lowery said authorities also will, "look hard at the possibility that there are other victims throughout the country."

Stillwell is in the Baldwin County Jail on $2 million bond.
