Hockley Co. human remains investigation on hold due to COVID-19

Posted: Updated:
HOCKLEY COUNTY, Texas -

Hockley County's investigation into human remains found last week is at a stand still.

Sheriff Ray Scifres says they can't be sent to the University of North Texas for processing due to coronavirus restrictions.

Until pathologists can determine a cause of death, there's nothing the county can do at this time. Sheriff Scifres says the remains have decayed enough to prevent identification, leaving it up to the pathologists as well.

Sheriff Scifres added with Governor Abbott loosening restrictions, UNT can get the remains soon.
