Cops Search for Clues After Decomposed Body Pulled From Sims Bayou
Another body in the bayou.
Screencap KPRC - Houston
Just last week we told you about Tim Miller and his organization finding more than 100 cars at the bottom Sims and Braes bayous. As if to punctuate his point about potentially finding bodies inside some of those vehicles, the badly decomposed corpse of a man was found Sunday afternoon in Sims Bayou, according to reports.
An autopsy is expected today, but initial reports said the unidentified body, found by a passerby, was that of a Hispanic man in late 20s to early 30s.
Police told KHOU the male body was between 5 feet 6 inches to 6 feet tall, dressed in a green shirt, black checkered shoes, and dark jeans. KTRK described the body, found under an overpass in the 8100 block of the Gulf Freeway, as floating face down in Sims Bayou, "his pants were around his ankles."
Police continue to investigate the matter.
