The Robstown Police Department is asking for the public's help in locating the family of a homeless man whose body was found on the east side of town several weeks ago.
The deceased man has been identified as Bobby Lynn Moore, 54.
Det. E.G. Paredez Jr., the investigator assigned to the case, said Monday he is currently searching for Moore's family members, but has so far been unsuccessful.
"We're asking if the public has any information to please come forward so that we can find and notify his next of kin," Paredez said.
There is no record of any known address for Moore or his family in state or local databases, Paredez said.
The department's investigation has determined that Moore spent some time in Opeleka, Alabama in December, and on Dec. 12 received a ride to Beaumont, Texas. How he got to Robstown and his reasons for coming to Texas are not known, Paredez said.
On Jan. 31, Moore's body was found in a blue tent in an area of abandoned businesses near Main Avenue and Highway 77 that is known to be frequented by local homeless individuals.
Moore's body was located by a man who was looking for a friend who was known to camp at that location. That man reportedly discovered a blue tent at the site and, upon entering the tent, discovered the body of a deceased male in an advanced state of decomposition.
The man's friend was later located at a local hospital.
The body was taken to the Corpus Christi Medical Examiner's Office, where an autopsy was performed.
He is believed to have passed away approximately two weeks prior to being found and lay undisturbed at the site.
A cause of death has not been determined by the medical examiner's office, but foul play is not suspected in the case.
Anyone with information related to this case is asked to contact Det. E.G. Paredez Jr. at the Robstown Police Department, 387-3531.
