Body Found In Gregg County

A gruesome discovery by fishermen on an east Texas river.

A man's body is found floating down the Sabine.

The discovery was made near highway 149 in Lakeport around 11 Sunday morning. Sheriff's deputies say the fishermen spotted the badly decomposed body tangled in some debris.

Investigators say they have no evidence of how the man died, and that his body could have been in the river for months.

"It appears the victim has been in the water for some time, we will continue to work with the items we have available in an attempt to identify the victim," says Sheriff Maxey Cerliano.

The body has been set to Dallas for autopsy.
