    TX - Austin, Skeletal remains on Walnut Creek bike trail, Jul'17 - Robert Sepeda

    Decomposed human remains found on Walnut Creek hike and bike trail

    AUSTIN, Texas - Monday, a cyclist discovered human remains along the Walnut Creek hike and bike trail.

    Police said the body parts are in an advanced state of decomposition so they cannot determine cause of death or identify them.
    I saw something kind of up in the distance, and we're thinking that maybe it was a dead animal from the distance, and just as we got closer, realized that there was some jeans and that there was something weird sticking out of it that looked like bones, said Jones.

    Other cyclists rode by without noticing anything abnormal, but jones took a closer look. That's when he saw a foot inside of a sock sticking out.
    About 90 minutes after calling the cops, Austin police arrived on scene near Johnny Morris Road and Daffan Lane.

    The medical examiner was also called out to collect the remains. Meanwhile, investigators combed through a nearby field for evidence.
    Tuesday, Austin police confirmed the bones were human remains in an advanced state of decomposition.
    Police said they are investigating this as a suspicious death unless the medical examiner rules otherwise.

    Detectives and the ME are working together to determine the cause of death and identify of the remains.

    Oh my. I didn't realize when I posted that it was only a foot and jeans found on the bike trail.

    Probably dragged there by somebody's dog or another animal.

    Map showing approximate location where remains were found. Brown Distributing is very near the place where the initial remains were found.

    Police identify victim after body parts found on Austin bike trail

    Austin police said bicyclists reported finding the decomposing leg and foot of Robert Sepeda, 68, on bike trails near Johnny Morris Road and Daffan Lane around 7:45 a.m. Monday, July 31.

    On Wednesday, Aug. 1, police found the remainder of the body off of Old Manor Road using a cadaver dog.
    The case is being treated as suspicious due to the lack of an apparent cause of death or explanation of the location of the body parts near the bike trails, according to police.

    The remains found at Old Manor Road last month were identified as Robert "Bobby" Sepeda, police said. As it happens, the positive ID comes on the day Sepeda would have turned 68 years old, according to the date of birth information police provided.
    Sepeda is known to police, given a past booking photo provided to media outlets. A plea for information from the public as to his last known whereabouts prior to his death suggests he may have been itinerant or homeless, although police didn't specify that.

    Rest in peace, Mr. Sepeda. Sounds like you've had a rough life; I hope you have some peace now.
