Couple finds man’s body while viewing new home in Texas
A pair of house hunters tripped over a body while looking at a property in Texas, authorities said.
The incident occurred around 5:15 pm. The news channel KHOU reported on Saturday in a house under construction in Katy.
While touring the property, the couple discovered the body of a man in a drainage ditch behind the backyard, authorities said.
The man’s body appeared to have been there for a few days, KHOU reported.
He had suffered trauma, although the circumstances of his death were not immediately clear, KHOU reported.
An autopsy was ordered to determine the cause of death, authorities said.
“Right now we’re not sure exactly what happened to any of the individuals,” said Harris County Sheriff Sgt. Jason Brown told reporters, the Houston Chronicle reported.
