NEAR PECOS - Investigators still don't know if a body found in a burning shed outside of Pecos belongs to a missing man.

With mountains of evidence to sort through, Captain Reno Lewis tells NewsWest 9, they're no where near solving the case.

Back in March, deputies went to check out a call about a burning building southwest of town.

They found a small metal shed burned down and a body inside.

A few days earlier, they received a report of a missing man.

Family members say he lived in the burned shed.

His pickup was found a few days later in West Odessa.

The body was sent to a forensics lab in Lubbock.

Texas Rangers are still investigating the case.
