HOUSTON, TX – Houston Police are literally trying to piece together the case of a body found near Buffalo Bayou.

Monday afternoon, a man and his son were walking around the bayou when the father saw what looked like an arm connected to a rib cage under a tree. About 20 feet away, the son found the rest of the body.

Investigators say they don’t suspect foul play.

“The appearance is that the person either jumped from the bridge or fell from the bridge,” said Det. Fil Waters.

Investigators say, despite the advanced state of decomposition, they were able to identify the man. The medical examiner is working to notify his next of kin.
