Body Discovered in Ditch Near Amarillo

A body has been recovered from a water-filled ditch in the Texas Panhandle in a death being investigated as suspicious.

Amarillo police say an autopsy was expected to be completed by Friday.

Lt. Gary Trupe says investigators will try to determine if the victim was a Nevada man last seen alive in December.

His name has not been released.

Trupe says the body found Wednesday morning, by a worker spraying for weeds, is similar to the person in the photo of the man reported missing.
