As of Wednesday, many questions remain unanswered in the investigation of a decomposing body found in Lynn County. A rancher found the body Tuesday at the intersection of U.S. 380 and County Road M, West of Tahoka. Investigators from the Lynn County Sheriff's office are searching the area for clues to how the body got there.
At this hour, they do not know if it is a man or a woman. They do say weather and animals played a part in the condition of the body. The body is now in Lubbock for DNA testing.
Investigators say it's possible the body is Alejandro Gomez. Gomez has been missing since January.
