SWEETWATER - The preliminary autopsy results are in for a body found near Interstate 20 in Sweetwater.

According to KTXS, Sweetwater Police say the body belongs to an adult male.

However, authorities still haven't determined an age, race or how he died.

The results, although limited, lay to rest rumors that the body could belong to missing Colorado City teen Hailey Dunn.

Police Chief Brian Frieda says they are working to gather missing person's cases to try to identify the man.

Last week, the body was found by TXDOT workers when a mower ran over it.

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