The Texas Department of Public Safety is asking the public’s help in solving the murder of U.S. Marine Pfc. Greg William Ivey, 20...

At the time of his death, Ivey, had been in his hometown of Groves on a 15-day leave. Ivey was last seen on May 8, 1989, when his father dropped him off at Houston Intercontinental Airport for a flight back to Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. However, records indicate that Ivey never boarded his departing flight and never reported to Camp Lejeune.

A friend reported receiving a phone call from Ivey on May 10, 1989 and said Ivey claimed to be hitchhiking back to Groves.

Ivey’s remains were found in August 1989 near about a half-mile into the woods off an old logging road about 10 miles southeast of Warren in Tyler County.

An autopsy found evidence of murder, the DPS said.
