    Today, if you google "body found sweetwater," the news reports state that the body was severely/badily decomposed, so much so that an identification could not be made.

    It could still be Hailey. It is strange though for a body to be there like that long enough to decompose severely without being discovered though. It is in fairly plain sight. The number of truckers alone with a high vantage point should have been able to see something like that. Some articles also indicate that other evidence was collected at the scene, so I wonder if the body was wrapped and had only recently been exposed by the elements or something.

    You can tell from both Google Maps and Bing maps almost exactly where the body was found. It is near several businesses on the Interstate, flat, and no where close to a drainage area (in the median anyway) that could have "deposited" the body from elsewhere.

    Depending on how decomposed the body is, I would surmise that it was dumped there. If correct, it would indicate that the body had been elsewhere, perhaps buried or not, and moved from wherever it has been depending on how long it was decomposing.

    I've traveled this part of I-20 for over 28 years. Sweetwater is a good stopping point after getting off the highway to Lubbock and is a good place to stop if you missed Abilene or Colorado City as possible other stops, depending on the way you were traveling.

    Point is that the body could not have been there in that area decomposing for a long time without someone noticing it.

    That's true. I wonder if the body was dumped the night before but why on the side of heavily traveled I20 and by a truck stop?. I am sure the median has been mowed before now also. just strange.

    After reveiwing google maps and Bing maps. I noticed some work has been done in the area in question since the maps photos were taken.

    I am wondering if it is possible that these remains were buried in the dirt as work was done and have been unearth for whatever reason.

    You can see fresh dirt exposed in many of the maps photos at exit 242.

    New Details Released After Body Was Found on Interstate 20 in Sweetwater

    Posted: Jul 27, 2012 4:58 PM CDT Updated: Jul 27, 2012 4:58 PM CDT






    Staff Report
    NewsWest 9
    SWEETWATER - New details on the body found on Interstate 20 in Sweetwater on Thursday.
    The autopsy is complete but now the remains have been sent to Denton to help with identification.
    They're not releasing yet if it is a man or a woman or how they died.
    The body was found in the median of I-20 by TXDOT workers who were cleaning up the area.
    According to KTXS in Abilene, a mower ran over it.
    A TXDOT supervisor says it was mostly bones and what little clothing was there was ripped by the mower.
    A worker at the B-Line Sweetwater business, that's near where the body was found, told KTXS that he fears it may have been a man who parked his car near their shop, a couple of months ago, because he never returned.

    from the looks of where the body was found, it doesn't look like any kind of construction has taken place in a long time.

    An update tonight on the investigation of the body found in Sweetwater yesterday. Residents claim they saw authorities searching a vacant truck that belonged to a man often seen in the area. Folks in that area say they haven't seen that man in some time.

    "We don't know where he's at, where he's been, and now with this body, we're just hoping it's not him," says Johnny De Los Santos, an employee at B-Line Lube.

    However, speculation only increased when De Los Santos says authorities were out investigating the vehicle early this morning.

    This probably isn't Hailey but I wonder if the person could have been hit by a car while crossing the highway and that's why they were on the median?

    Remains Found Along I-20 in Sweetwater, TX
    Texas Department of Transportation workers found a dead body just inside Sweetwater in the median of Interstate 20.
    . . . The TX Dot employees were cleaning up after mowing along the interstate when they found the body at approximately mile marker 242, just east of the T-A Truck Stop and Dandy's Western Wear. Sweetwater Police, Texas DPS and the Nolan County Sheriff's Office are assisting.

    Body Found in Nolan County
    Authorities do not know if the body was male or female, said Brian Frieda, police chief for the Sweetwater Police Department.
    "The body is in a severe state of decomposition, so being able to tell if the race or sex of the individual is not being able to be made at this time," said Frieda.
    The remains were sent to Lubbock for autopsy.

    The man who's vehicle was left in the area seems like a good candidate for the remains. But why didn't anyone call that in to police? Seems like a lot of them knew his vehicle had been left untouched for a while?

    I can't believe a corpse laid out in the median on a busy interstate and by a truck stop and other businesses till it was just a pile of bones and no one noticed...boggles my mind. I guess people just don't want to get involved anymore. I know of no other reason.

    It is hard to believe cajun, plus you would think there would be an odor or vector activity, right?

    Ok. I am game lets start with the title.

    Hailey Dunn's Birthday Doesn't Change Anything For Lead Investigators

    More of the same from them for the next year.

    The next part seems to be saying she is still missing and her birthday isnt any reason to look. All the news stories are not helping.

    To outsiders it is discouraging , I guess the insiders are not discouraged.

    Kelsy says keeping the same mind set she had when Hailey first went missing is the key. ( horrid flashback to unprofessional dispatcher in their dept on anouther call) She also seems to be trying not to say anything yet let us know that the investigation is nothing but reflection as of now and Haileys birthday isnt going to push an effort from her. IMO...moo...

    Maybe I should have let someone else do this because now I am po'ed.

    Oh God, poor Hailey. The date of her birthday means nothing-SHE is still missing, isn't that what is important.

    ARGH
