    October 3, 1988 the remains of the deceased were discovered in a gully across from a wayside on Highway 29 four miles east of Georgetown, TX. A farmer called the sheriff after his dog dragged the skull into his yard. The estimated date of death was 1-12 months prior the remains being discovered. The white male, possibly of Hispanic or Native American ancestry, was 27-38 years old, stood 5’2 – 5’5 tall, and had straight brown hair with some gray. His nose had been previously broken and his arms were most likely muscular. Due to the insignia on the hat found near the remains, he has become known as “Rebel Ray”.

    Status
    Case on hold for administrative reasons. The DNA analysis at DNA Solutions needs re-extraction.
