    Not sure if this has been posted.

    Per The Daily Mail UK):

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2551458/FBI-investigate-mysterious-death-physiotherapist-vanished-turned-three-weeks-later-place-police-searched.html

    The FBI has launched an investigation into the death of a physiotherapist who vanished and was found dead in a desert three weeks later missing an ear, teeth and tongue.

    Alfred Wright, 28, was last seen at a petrol station near his home in Texas on November 7 as he drove to visit a patient.

    His disappearance sparked a large-scale manhunt, but police closed the case after two weeks.

    Days later, the father-of-two's family found him half-naked and mutilated in the East Texas outback where police claimed to have looked.

    Now, after two pathologists gave conflicting reports - one found the death to be an accident; another ruled Mr Wright suffered 'severe trauma' - the federal bureau has taken over the case, according to CNN.

    The family has also issued an appeal for any information about what they believe is a 'suspicious murder' that was motivated by race

    ...



    Please note that this happened in Jasper County, Texas, the same county where James Byrd Jr. was beaten, murdered, and dragged from the back of a pick-up truck in June 1998.

    Texas strikes again. How does a Black man have these mutilations and it gets ruled "accidental"? Or due to drug use, for which he has no history?

    Well, there's a lot of this story that does NOT add up. If he died of an OD, then what happened to his throat (slit) and his teeth (missing) and tongue (cut out). Also, he called home to report his truck had broken down so why was he running when he was told by his wife that someone would be coming to pick him up. So many questions and so few answers. He's such a nice looking guy and the pictures with his family show a very loving guy.

    Also, didn't his brother perform on American Idol? I don't know how he was able to do that, I couldn't have! icon_sad.gif

    Dunno... any body that's laying out in the desert for three weeks is going to get pretty messed up by animals. Generally a lot more than what is described in the story, though.
