Body found in trunk; no details released
Van Zandt County authorities and Texas Rangers worked a scene north of Wills Point Tuesday where a body was found inside a trunk on the side of the road.
Sheriff Pat Burnett said the discovery was made earlier Tuesday and he confirmed there was a body in the trunk, which he described as something that could be used as furniture.
"I will say it is not a baby, but we are not releasing any details as of gender or age at this time," he said.
Burnett said the trunk was on Farm-to-Market Road 47 about four miles north of Wills Point.
"My office and the Texas Rangers are out working the case and investigating the scene and collecting evidence at this time," he said.
