The body of a 33-year-old College Station man who had been missing since the beginning of the month was discovered in Grimes County four weeks into October off of county road 103.
Grimes County Sheriff’s Captain Blake Jarvis tells Navasota News, the property consisted of about 850 acres backing up to the Navasota river.
Hyatt had been missing since September the third, Jarvis adds, the fact he was an adult may have accounted for the reason his parents didn’t make a report until a week later.
Jarvis says many attempts were made to find Hyatt, but inclement weather, and resulting poor ground conditions in the area of dense underbrush, had prevented their success until last tuesday (09/24).
“We had approximately 30 officers, including two human remains dogs…” says Jarvis, “Prior times we went out there, we did not have the man power.”
He continues that all indications so far, at least, lead officials to believe Hyatt’s death was natural.
The autopsy on Hyatt’s body is expected to be completed soon. Keep it on 1550, and if there are any surprises in the report, you’ll hear about it, right here on Navasota News.
