Human remains found in Comal County identified as missing Schertz man

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — The Schertz Police Department says human remains found in Comal County earlier this month, are those of a 22 year old man who has been missing for more than a year.

Jacob Dubois was last seen at his home in Schertz in March of 2021.

According to reports, he had told his girlfriend he was meeting up with his friend Ethan Beckman that day.

Dubois was reported missing two days later and Beckman told police he had left Dubois at a nearby construction site after Dubois said he wanted to walk home.

But when police returned a few days later, Beckman’s story had changed.

It was later discovered that Beckman had been involved in a car crash March 8, 2021 and abandoned his car near Highway 281.

Police found traces of blood and signs that someone had tried to clean the vehicle’s interior.

Beckman was charged with tampering with evidence and is still being held at the Guadalupe County Jail.
