A Lake Jackson police vehicle blocks access to a crime scene where investigators found a man's body early Sunday afternoon on the south bank of the Brazos River near the intersection of FM 2004 and CR 400.

LAKE JACKSON — Police found a body on the edge of the Brazos River early Sunday afternoon, near the intersection of FM 2004 and CR 400.

It was about 12:50 p.m. when Lake Jackson police “responded to a 911 call in reference to a body found on the shoreline,” Lake Jackson Police Sgt. Roy Welch said. “When we got here, it was an unidentified male who was found deceased at the water’s edge on ... the Jones Creek side of the 2004 bridge.”

Welch wouldn’t publicly comment on the deceased’s possible age range, height or weight, clothing, distinguishing marks or anything similar, but he said investigators are treating the matter as a homicide. A news release describes the victim as an unidentified Hispanic male. 

Anyone with any possible information on the case is encouraged to contact Lake Jackson police at 979-415-2700.
