Human Remains Discovered at Corpus Christi Wastewater Lift Station

The Corpus Christi Police Department Robbery/Homicide Detectives are investigating human remains found at the Perry Place wastewater lift station, located off the 5300 block of Lexington Road. City Water employees discovered the remains during maintenance operations at approximately 3:30 pm on Monday and immediately alerted the police.

Detectives are working to determine how the remains ended up in the wastewater lift station collection well. The remains, which showed no obvious signs of homicide, were sent to the Nueces County Medical Examiner’s Office for examination. Due to the advanced state of decomposition, identification and determination of the manner or cause of death were not possible at this time.

The remains are being sent to the University of North Texas Center for Human Identification (UNTCHI) for DNA analysis. UNTCHI is a leading resource in the United States for identifying missing persons and unidentified human remains.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is urged to contact the Corpus Christi Police Department Criminal Investigation Division at (361) 826-2840 or submit an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers at 888-TIPS (888-8477).
