SWEETWATER - New details on the body found on Interstate 20 in Sweetwater on Thursday.

The autopsy is complete but now the remains have been sent to Denton to help with identification.

They're not releasing yet if it is a man or a woman or how they died.

The body was found in the median of I-20 by TXDOT workers who were cleaning up the area.

According to KTXS in Abilene, a mower ran over it.

A TXDOT supervisor says it was mostly bones and what little clothing was there was ripped by the mower.

A worker at the B-Line Sweetwater business, that's near where the body was found, told KTXS that he fears it may have been a man who parked his car near their shop, a couple of months ago, because he never returned.
