Missing Man Found Buried Under Chicken Coop

NBC10

A body found buried under a chicken coop has been identified as a Houston-area man who disappeared on New Year's Eve.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office on Monday identified the victim as 41-year-old Jesus Leal Valdez of Pasadena. A tip led to the discovery Saturday of his body buried a couple of feet beneath the coop in a backyard.

Authorities did not immediately release a cause of death. Nobody has been arrested. Investigators are also looking for the man's vehicle.

Anyone with information on the case has been asked to contact Harris County deputies.
