REEVES COUNTY - New information on a man's body found in a ditch in Balmorhea.

NewsWest 9 has learned he's been identified by family members.

The body has been identified as 46-year-old Jose Lopez, Junior.

His body was found in a ditch on Friday morning.

Family members contacted NewsWest 9 and said Lopez had diabetes but they're not sure if that had a role in his death.

The family says the Reeves County Sheriff's Office says it doesn't look like foul play was involved but they're still waiting on autopsy results to confirm that.
