Ankle monitor leads police to gruesome discovery in trunk of car

Body found in trunk

SAN ANTONIO -- An ankle monitor led San Antonio police to a gruesome discovery in a southwest-side Walmart parking lot.

Police found the body of a 63-year-old man was in the trunk of a Mercedes around 9:30 Thursday night at the 8538 I-35 South Walmart location.

A spokesperson for SAPD said the man was on federal probation. The discovery was made when the man didn't check in with his probation officer and authorities pinged his ankle monitor.

The probation officer called SAPD after arriving at the parking lot. Police then called the San Antonio Fire Department to open the trunk of the vehicle and found the man's body.

Police said they are investigating this case as a murder.

This is a developing story, and Kens5.com will continue to post updates as they become available.
