KERR COUNTY, Texas -- The Kerr County Sheriff's Office said human remains were discovered Tuesday morning, and clothes and shoes indicate the victim was a female.
Workers clearing brush on Bartell Road in east Kerr County reportedly found the remains around 11:30 a.m.
"At this point, we have no idea how the body got there," Kerr County Sheriff Rusty Hierholzer said. "We don't know if it is a homicide or possibly a homeless person who died of exposure to the elements."
The sheriff's department said the victim was wearing size 5.5 shoes, possibly black in color, size four Calvin Klein pants, a black Polo-style shirt with a red pin stripe and a Snoopy Christmas sock. The victim also appears to have approximately shoulder length brown hair in a ponytail and upper and lower metal braces.
"Somewhere, someone is missing this person. We hope to find closure for this victim's family and if the death is determined to be caused by foul play, we will work to find the suspect," Hierholzer said.
Anyone with information on the possible identity of the victim or any information regarding a possible cause of death are asked to call the Kerr County Sheriff's Office at 896-1216 and ask for Captain Carol Twiss. You can also call Kerr County Crime Stoppers at 896-8477.
