A tip Friday afternoon led Montgomery County Detectives to a dirt road running to the west off the southbound feeder of US59 between Roman Forest ands FM1485.
The information they had was there was a dead body on the path. Detectives discovered a burned plastic trash can with the remains of what appears to be that of a female inside it. Judge Metts also arrived at the scene and ordered the body was taken to the Southwest Forensic Center in Conroe. Additional detectives arrived as did Harris County detectives and Houston Police. The Forensic Unit was also dispatched to the scene which started the almost ten hour investigation.
In the end Precinct Four Constable Rowdy Hayden took a suspect into custody. That suspect according to Montgomery County Detective Franklin is identified as 26 year old Robert Henton and is being held on a charge of Abuse of a Corpse.
Detectives braved the afternoon heat as they searched the entire area for evidence. A representative from the Montgomery County District Attorney was also present.
The case continues to be investigated.
