Body Found in Scurry County

lakethomasGoing into the fourth day of the investigation in Snyder revolving around a decomposed body, little has changed. Skeletal remains were found near Lake Thomas, south of Snyder Saturday. Forensic specialists from the FBI were still on the scene Tuesday, recovering as much of the remains, which had been scattered – most likely – by wildlife, as possible.
The area in which the remains were found makes it tough for law enforcement to search, as the terrain is mostly brush and cactus. Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman, Senior Trooper Sparky Dean said it is likely the age and sex of the remains could be elusive for some time.

“They are going to send the remains either to Lubbock or Fort Worth for investigation,” Dean said. “It could be some time before we have answers to some of the questions. They are treating this area like a crime scene at this point, while they attempt to recover as much of the remains, and any possible evidence, as they can.”
Meanwhile, in Colorado City, speculation and rumors have been spreading, as they did a year ago when a body was found in Big Spring. Nancy Grace has not called, not just yet, but the inevitable television crews have already arrived, further inciting the speculation by shoving microphones in the faces of the populace and asking, “Do you think it’s Hailey Dunn?”
Social media sites and even the Record’s e-mail box have been inundated with requests for the information we must be keeping from the public, when the simple fact remains, there are very few facts in this case, and there is not a single one of them at this point which points to the missing Colorado City cheerleader.
All that is known at this time is that skeletal remains have been found in Scurry County, forensic teams are searching the area for more pieces and any possible evidence and they intend to send the remains – once they are satisfied they have found all they can – to either Fort Worth or Lubbock. Unfortunately, that is all which is known at this point.
If any additional facts are presented after the record is published, they will be posted on the newspaper’s website.
Colorado City police chief, Roy Owens had the following statement on the matter:
“At this time, we have no indication or evidence that the remains found in Scurry County have any connection to us,” he said. “It is a Scurry County investigation at this point and we have no intention of getting in their way.”
