Body Discovered in Wastewater Lift Station, Investigation Underway

Human remains were discovered near Ennis Joslin, prompting an investigation by Corpus Christi Police. Despite the grim discovery, there were no blatant signs of homicide on the remains, leaving authorities puzzled about the circumstances surrounding this macabre finding. The search for missing person Caleb Harris remains ongoing, with no concrete link established between the remains and his disappearance.

The unsettling discovery took place at the Perry Place wastewater lift station, a locked facility where a Corpus Christi Water employee stumbled upon the remains while conducting routine maintenance. The need for a key to access the wet well, where the remains were located, raises questions about how the individual or individuals responsible gained entry to the restricted area.

City records indicate that there are approximately 105 lift stations scattered throughout Corpus Christi, each subject to varying levels of inspection. The Perry Place station, where the remains were found, is classified as one of the smaller facilities in the city. Chief Mike Markle of the Corpus Christi Police expressed concern over the lack of clear evidence pointing to homicide, heightening the mystery surrounding the case.

The advanced state of decomposition of the remains has hindered the efforts of the Medical Examiner’s Office to identify the individual or determine a cause of death. Consequently, the remains are being sent to the University of North Texas Center for Human Identification for DNA analysis, a crucial step in unraveling this perplexing puzzle. Authorities are diligently working to ascertain how the remains ended up in the wastewater lift station collection well, seeking answers to this disturbing enigma.

In light of this baffling discovery, Corpus Christi Police are urging anyone with information to come forward and assist in the investigation. Those willing to contribute can contact the Criminal Investigation Division at (361) 826-2840 or submit an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers at 888-TIPS (888-8477). The search for answers continues as authorities strive to shed light on this eerie incident that has gripped the community with a sense of unease and uncertainty.
