A Dallas Fire Rescue ambulance crew was flagged down by a man who had been collecting cans in the area of Beckleymeade and I-20 shortly before 8:00pm last night (June 10, 2014). The man told the crew that he thought he found a body in the drainage ditch.
When police arrived they found a badly decomposed body in the underbrush of the drainage ditch. Homicide detectives were called and the Medical Examiner’s office collected the remains. Officers are unable, at this point, to make any kind of identification and will rely on the Dallas County Medical Examiners Office to do that as well as determine cause of death. Dallas police are currently investigating this as an unexplained death reported on 140383-2014.
