A headless body was found in Angleton, Texas, and authorities are asking the public for help.
The headless body of Jubal Dee Alexander was found inside of his truck at the Austin Bayou Boat Ramp on FM 2004 in Brazoria County, according to KHOU. Although the body was found on May 3, the authorities are now asking for help in discovering who murdered the man.
Alexander was sleeping in his truck under a bridge on FM 2004 where his headless body was found. A fisherman, who is also a Galveston police officer, noticed the truck sitting by the boat ramp when he went out onto the water in the morning. When he returned later that day, he saw that the vehicle was still there. Upon further inspection, he saw the headless body inside the truck and called the Brazoria County Sheriff’s Office.
Chron reports that authorities arrived and could not locate the head belonging to the headless body even after an extensive search.
The blue Chevrolet pickup truck with the headless body was found was parked at the ramp.
The last time anyone had heard from Alexander was on April 27. Investigators are not sure when Alexander was murdered and left headless in his truck. The medical examiner’s office has not released the official cause of death for the body yet.
The headless body had to be identified through fingerprints. Alexander’s father lamented the fact that he could not see his son because whoever murdered him left the body headless and took the head.
“They cut my son’s head off, and they took my son’s head. Who would do that? I couldn’t even see my son. They won’t even let me see him.”
In an interview with ABC 13, Alexander’s father describes his final day with his son.
Just days before his son’s headless body was found, the father of the victim said he had dinner with his son and that his 24-year-old son was trying to make ends meet working as a pipe fitter at a local chemical plant.
The victim was described as a hard-working man who wanted his father to be proud of him.
“He wanted me to be proud of him, so we worked exceptionally hard,” the father of the deceased man said. “His shift was at least a 10-hour, maybe a 12-hour shift. He worked all night long.”
The family of the deceased says he was never in trouble and that he was not robbed before he was murdered and his head taken. The victim’s wallet with cash and his guitar were found in the truck. The only thing that appeared to be taken was Alexander’s head.
The father of the victim doesn’t want to talk to the murderer, but he wants people to know what happened to his son and for someone to come forward with details to help the authorities learn what happened to Jubal Dee Alexander.
Alexander’s father said, “I don’t want to say anything to the person. I want help to find the people who do this. I want enough coverage. I want people to know I don’t want this to be swept under the rug or die in a cold case. I want people to know.”
Investigators will not say whether the truck was forced into or if they think the headless murder occurred over drugs or anything else.
