Liberty County in Texas

Investigators are trying to identify the remains of a person found deceased in north Liberty County around 10 a.m. Tuesday. The body was found in a wooded area in the 1400 block of CR 3737, and deputies say it appears to have been there for several days or weeks.

Preliminary reports indicate the body may be that of a white male, but investigators are unable to establish the identity or if foul play was involved due to advanced decomposition. An autopsy has been ordered.
