Houston Police Investigating Second Body Found in Bayou Recently
Houston police are investigating after a dead body was found in a Houston bayou.
Residents in the Magnolia Park neighborhood called police Sunday morning after spotting a body floating in Greens Bayou. The discovery was made at about 1018 Westmont Drive, police said, in a residential neighborhood of east Houston.
That section of Westmont Drive has house lots running right up to the bayou. The body was floating past people’s backyards.
Cops have not yet identified the victim. They aren’t even sure of the gender or age of the person. The body was in an “advanced state of decomposition” but had “no apparent signs of trauma,” according to a statement from HPD homicide detectives M. Coleman and T. Tyler.
