Cadaver dog locates body after leg, foot found near East Austin bike trail
Police investigators say a cadaver dog has located a body after a badly decomposed foot and leg were found Monday morning near an East Austin bike trail.
The human remains were first found by bike riders near the trail close to the Johnny Morris Road and Daffan Lane intersection.
Austin Police say on Wednesday the rest of the body was located nearby off Old Manor Road.
The Travis County Medical Examiner is working to identify the person and determine the cause of death.
APD says as with all bodies found in advanced stages of decomposition and no apparent explanation as to the cause of death, this case will initially be investigated as suspicious.
