On Friday morning, a body was found in a car in the parking lot of Lone Star Circle of Care, 610 Mallard, in Taylor. The identity of the victim has not been released.

According to police reports, on May 22 around 9:30 a.m., police responded to a call for a possible dead body found. Taylor Police Chief Henry Fluck said a patient parked next to a white 2015 Ford Escape and call police after they saw a person lain in the back seat.

Fluck said when officers arrived, they found the body in a state of decomposition. He said the vehicle where the body was found had been in the parking lot since Tuesday, May 19.

The body was described as a large man possibly in his 30s or 40s. Fluck said due to decomposition, the victim’s ethnicity could not be determined.

Fluck said there were no obvious signs of trauma, however the case is still under investigation. An autopsy has been ordered and results can take up to six weeks. Fluck said a preliminary indication could be available in a few days.

The Williamson County Crime Scene Unit was called to help investigate the scene.
