The Lubbock Police Department’s Metro Special Crimes Unit is investigating a body that was found at the site of a fire Thursday morning, April 22nd, 2021.

According to news reports, the fire was first spotted by a motorist in the area of FM 1585 and Avenue L. A trooper with the Texas Department of Public Safety was alerted to the fire and called for backup.

At about 6 a.m., members of the Woodrow Volunteer Fire Department were on the scene of a camper that had caught fire. The Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office also responded to the scene.

After the fire was extinguished, KAMC News reports that first responders discovered a body inside the camper. The LPD’s Metro Special Crimes Unit has since taped off the area in order to conduct an investigation.

It remains unclear what caused the fire, and the body has yet to be identified. The cause of death is also still a mystery.
