LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

Longview police have identified the person whose body was found in a wooded area on Monday.

Longview Police Officer Kristie Brian says the victim is 19-year-old Andres Chavez.

Police responded to a call about a dead body just after 7:00 a.m. in the 1100 block of Sabine Street Monday. Upon arrival, they discovered a man's body. Officials tell us they are investigating this as a homicide. It happened in a heavily wooded area. Train tracks on one side, a new trailer park on the other, and an oil well where a car sat unattended Monday morning. That's when a passerby came across the body.

"We believe this was a homicide, but in the beginning it came in as a dead body call," Brian said.

Brian said police found a male body lying next to a car near an oil well. They suspect he was killed overnight, but didn't say how.

"We, as always, treat dead bodies as homicides and began an investigation," she said.
