HOUSTON, TX – Surprises can be fun, but for Texas Equusearch it wasn’t such a pleasant one.

Officials were at Bud Hadfield Park in north Harris County looking for a missing 68-year-old Tommie Lowery. Instead of finding Lowery, they found an unidentified body with multiple gunshot wounds.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office says the body was found in a ditch, and appears to be that of a black or Hispanic male.

It was certainly an unfortunate surprise, but hopefully officials are able to get some answers on Lowery and now this new, unexpected murder case.
