Man found dead near empty field in Harlingen

HARLINGEN – The body of a man was found this morning just blocks away from the police department.

Sgt. David Osborne said a man, possibly in his late 50s, was found laying in a field near the 700 block of North H Street, near Fair Park Boulevard.

Investigators are currently on the scene. It appears the man might have been dead for several days, Osborne said.

“At this point we are not ruling anything out,” Osborne said.

We’ll have more details as they become available.
