Body found near Sweetwater determined to be adult male

NOLAN COUNTY, TX (KCBD) -

According to Sweetwater Police Chief Bryan Freida, Sweetwater Police and Texas Rangers are still investigating after a body was found on Interstate 20 Thursday. 

Preliminary results from tests on the remains show them to be those of an adult male. These findings remove any speculation that the remains were those of missing teen Hailey Dunn.

The remains have been sent to the University of North Texas where an anthropologist will continue the autopsy in search of the identity of the remains. Final results are still pending.

Around 11:15 a.m. crews contracted with TXDot were working in the area of mile marker 242 on I-20 in Nolan County when mowing crews discovered human remains.

Chief Frieda asked that the body be transported to Lubbock for autopsy.
