Henderson Co. sheriff IDs remains found in 2013 house demolition

HENDERSON COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

Henderson County Sheriff's Office has identified the body of man missing since early 2011, after a 2013 property demolition unearthed his remains.

According to a sheriff's office report released Monday, Eustace resident Theodore "Ted" Hunt, 47, was last seen near the end of February or the beginning of March 2011. He went missing from his residence at 500 U.S. Highway 175 in Eustace.

Hunt's property and the surrounding area were searched using two independent search teams and rescue cadaver dogs in an effort to locate him, according to the report. A small lake also was drained on an adjoining property. An investigation was conducted concerning his disappearance. After speaking with potential witnesses and family members, Hunt was not located and the case remained open.

On Nov. 21, 2013 a house on the property was being demolished and excavation was done with heavy equipment. Skeletal remains suspected to be human were found at the residence. The remains were sent to the University of North Texas Laboratory of Forensic Anthropology in Denton for review. Through DNA testing and comparison, the remains were confirmed to be Hunt's.

Investigators are now searching for a four-door 1983, cream-colored Mercury car Hunt was driving prior to his disappearance. The car is believed to have been sold from his property in the months after his disappearance. 

To provide information about Hunt's disappearance, death or the vehicle, contact Investigator Bradley Gray at 903-675-5128 at the Henderson County Sheriff's Office.
