The Atascosa County Sheriff’s investigators, acting on a tip, secured a search warrant on some rural property at an undisclosed location near Poteet.
Investigators, assisted by the Bexar County Sheriff Regional Crime Lab, unearthed the remains of a human body Friday morning, January 15.
An autopsy was ordered by Justice of the Peace Pct. 1 Michael Pascarella and the remains were sent to the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office.
No identity has been established as of this time.
“We believe the individual has been dead for at least a year,” said Sheriff David Soward.
Investigation is on-going but it is obviously being treated as a homicide.
