Press Release #070114(01)-Police Investigate Unidentified Dead Body
Jul 01, 2014   03:24 PM

San Angelo Police Detectives and Crime Scene Technicians continue to investigate a dead body that was located this morning in an abandoned trailer at a property in North San Angelo.

 

At approximately 9:37 a.m., San Angelo Police were dispatched to Kay's Old Fashioned Barber Shop, 2340 N. Chadbourne, for the report of an unknown problem.

 

Upon arrival, police spoke with parties who said a man had come into the business to report he found a dead body at a nearby location.

 

Police made contact with the man and transported him to an area in the 100 block of E. Twenty-Fifth Street where there are several abandoned homes.  During an interior search of one of the abandoned trailers located on the property, police located the body of a subject who, by the state of decomposition, appears to have been deceased for some time.  At this time, the identity of the deceased is unknown, although it appears the deceased is a male.

 

Justice of the Peace Fred Buck responded to the scene and ordered the body sent to Lubbock, Texas for autopsy.

 

The man who alerted police was questioned at the scene by detectives and later released. 

 

This is an ongoing investigation.
