Authorities say a headless body was found in a pickup parked at the Austin Bayou Boat Ramp on FM 2004 in Brazoria County.
The discovery was made the evening of May 3. The victim has since been identified as Jubal Dee Alexander from Port Arthur.
The Brazoria County Sheriff's Office says a caller reported what appeared to be a deceased person in a blue Chevrolet pickup truck parked at the ramp.
Investigators said a fisherman came back from a day on the water and noticed the truck hasn’t moved since early that same morning.
Deputies responded and found the headless body.
Investigators confirmed the man's identity, but after an extensive search his head was never located. Positive identification was made through fingerprint analysis.
Authorities won’t say whether someone forced their way into the vehicle or if drugs were involved.
Authorities say the victim was last heard from on April 27.
Alexander worked as a pipe cutter for a plant in the area. Authorities say he worked the overnight shift, and was homeless, so he would sleep in his truck during the day.
