Brown County Sheriff Bobby Grubbs confirmed late Thursday afternoon that a human body had been found at the Brownwood municipal landfill, but details available from law enforcement officers remaining sketchy at press time.
Grubbs said he could not comment on any details of the developing investigation.
“In a situation like this, we cannot give out any information until we’ve talked to people who might be witnesses,” Grubbs said. “At this time I cannot confirm anything except that a body has been found and it is being investigated.”
Grubbs said he could not disclose the gender, age or any information about the body, or if the body had been or could be identified.
Meanwhile, according to the sheriff’s office media reports, filed Thursday morning, a 35-year-old male was arrested for driving while his license was invalid. The man’s license was suspended because of a DWI, though he had an order granting him an occupational license allowing him to drive to court, work or treatment between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Deputies Pete Bastardo and Carlyle Gover, working interdiction, made the stop at 10:48 p.m. Monday.
Also, according to a Brownwood City Police report filed Thursday, a man in the 2400 block of Durham reported the theft of his year-old female pit bull. Bert Green told police he did not have a fence, but kept the dog chained, and he felt she had been stolen because the snap and leash were intact.
The white-with-brown-spots dog “was just a big old pet,” Green is quoted as saying in the report. He said the dog wouldn’t hurt anyone, and they wouldn’t feel threatened if they got close to her.
