Incident at 8200 Mykawa

June 20, 2006 -- Houston police are investigating the death of a man found at 8200 Mykawa about 8 a.m. today (June 20).

The identity of the male victim and the cause of death are pending an autopsy by the Harris County Medical Examiner's office.

HPD Homicide Division Officers R.A. Swainson and J.C. Bonaby reported:

While searching along the sides of the roadway for scrap metal, a witness discovered the body of a male lying in a field. HFD paramedics responded to the scene and pronounced the victim dead. Investigators determined the man's body had been at the location for several days, which would probably rule out any relation to the flooding which took place in southeast Houston yesterday. The male is described as being Hispanic, 25-30 years of age, about 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighing 140 pounds. The victim was dressed in a blue button down dress shirt, blue jeans with a brown leather belt. There were no obvious signs of trauma to the body.

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
