Body Identified In Titus County

     A man found dead in a rail car by Titus county workers last week, was a fugitive from justice. Workers near Mount Pleasant at the "Swepco-Welsh" power plant on farm road 1734 found the body stuck in a coal chute around 1:30 last Friday afternoon.

     Investigators say 27 year old William Thompson Junior, of "Anna" Texas , suffocated inside the coal chute. Thompson was wanted for failure to register as a sex offender, and police believe he died while trying to hide in the coal car.
