The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public to help identify the remains of a young Hispanic male that were found on Dec. 17, 2000, near the intersection of the 8500 block of W. Davis Estates Road and FM 1994.
He was 5-feet, 3-inches tall and weighed approximately 160 pounds. He is estimated to be between 16 and 23 years of age.
“The remains were discovered in the rural area of Fort Bend County, actually in the vicinity of what is now the dump three or four miles from Fairchilds,” said Sheriff’s Office Detective Scott Minyard.
“What we have to go on are the basics: estimated age, height and weight and the brand names on the clothing he was wearing.”
Forensic analysis has determined the person may be from Guatemala or the southern region of Mexico.
Clothing items found at the site included a brown “Pele” brand shoe, a black “Guess” wrist-band and “Route 66” brand blue jeans.
The reconstruction featured here is an artist’s rendering of what the deceased may have looked like.
“There is a family somewhere, maybe in the states or Mexico or Guatemala, that is wondering what happened to their loved one,” said Sheriff Troy Nehls. “We will also be sending this press release to the Guatemalan Consulate in McAllen.”
Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to contact the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office (281-341-4665, Extension 1) or the Guatemalan Consulate in McAllen, Texas, (956-429-3413) and reference the Fort Bend County case number 99-8447.
