Update on Human Remains Found in Liberty

LIBERTY, January 26, 2017 – On January 25, 2017, Liberty Police with the assistance of personnel from Liberty County Sheriff’s Office completed a thorough search of the property where remains of a body was located on January 24, 2017.  

On January 24, 2017, Liberty Police went to a wooded area on Hwy 90 near FM 563.  During a walkthrough of this area in an attempt to locate evidence from a shooting which took place on January 6, 2017 at a nearby hotel human remains was located.  During this initial search there was also evidence recovered that is believed to have come from the suspect in that earlier case.  The human remains were not in the immediate area where the evidence was located, however they were on the same property.

The investigation now moves forward with doing a positive identification on the human remains.  Liberty Police want to note that a positive identification in cases like this can only be done scientifically, such as medical/dental records and/or DNA comparison.  The identification by DNA appears it will be the only positive means at this time.  This process could take several months to complete.  There will be no positive identification of the human remains until this is completed.
