Gruesome Eastside Discovery

What started out as a call for a grass fire has turned into a murder investigation in the city’s East Side.

Firefighters dousing the flames under a bridge on Yucca Street last night called San Antonio Police.

“When they arrived, they found the body of a male on fire,” said Officer Doug Greene

They don’t have much to go on and they’re asking anyone with information to contact SAPD’s homicide division.

“We did have mention of a black SUV leaving the area at the time of the fire,” said Greene.

The victim had visible tattoos, which investigators are hoping will help identify him.
