Body Found In Tyler

A routine patrol by a Tyler Police Officer turns up the body of a Tyler man. It was found on a dead-end section of Bellwood Road, just south of Highway 31 and West of Loop 323. 45-year-old Celerino Sanchez was found lying about 40 to 50 feet off the road just after 9:00 this morning. He hadn't been seen since Monday at work and was reported missing Tuesday.

"From the looks of the body, he's probably been out here two or three days," said Tyler Police Officer Chris Moore. "A lot of trauma to the head and his pockets are turned inside out like maybe he was robbed."

Police say Sanchez's truck has been reported stolen. It is a silver 1998 Chevy Silverado. Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact the Tyler Police Department.
