Burned Body Found In Gregg County

Gregg County officials say two off-roaders spotted a burning human body off an oil lease road north of Kilgore.  The discovery was made near Highway 31 off Fritz Swanson Rd.  

Gregg County Sheriffs deputies are investigating this as a homicide. Not much is known at this point, but investigators have some information on the victim.

"Evidence from the crime scene tends to make us believe that the victim is going to be an adult female possibly small to medium size and may have been wearing blue designer jeans and a mauve or purplish colored sweater or shirt," said Gregg County Sheriffs Office Captain Ken Hartley.

The body has been sent to Dallas for an autopsy. If you have information about the victim's identity, call the Gregg County Sheriff's Office.
