Texas Rangers and the Texas Attorney General’s Office, along with the Hemphill County Sheriff’s Office have confirmed human remains that were discovered last week are that of Thomas Brown, 18.

The remains were found last Wednesday, January 9.

Sgt. Cindy Barkley with DPS says the cause of death remains under investigation at this time, and anyone with information should contact law enforcement.

According to Klein Investigators, Brown’s remains were found off Lake Marvin Rd., near Lake Marvin, about 19 miles east of Canadian.

KIC told us Brown’s remains have been confirmed through records and said found by a person that heard the call from law enforcement, and by the investigators asking everyone to keep a watch on Lake Marvin Rd. 

Below is the full release from KIC:

Thomas Brown went missing on Nov. 23, 2016. Dissatisfied with the sheriff’s investigation, Brown’s family hired a private investigator, Klein Investigations & Consulting, to aid in the search.

Investigators said they were able to track his movements up until his disappearance shortly before midnight.
