Investigators still searching for clues & identity of dead body

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The autopsy on the man found dead in a northeast Lubbock field Monday will not be complete until Wednesday.

Homicide investigators were back at the scene near Municipal Drive and North Guava Avenue Tuesday. Officers scoured the field on horseback as they continue to look for clues to both the cause of death and the man's identity.

Investigators have some leads that could help identify the 18 to 25-year-old man, but say they are awaiting autopsy results to make a positive identification. Detectives are hopeful that at least one of the man's thumbprints was preserved enough to make a positive identification since the body decomposed significantly.
