Editor's note: This post was changed to add the verb "was," which was mistakenly left out earlier. Thanks to reader for pointing that out.
Investigators believe this man was around 30 when he was fatally shot and then dumped in a field 14 miles northwest of Cleburne.
That was in 1972. Since then, he has remained unnamed and his killer free.
But this case was recently reopened by the Johnson County’s Sheriff Department’s Cold Case Squad, a group of retired law enforcement officers working together to bring new life into investigations that have long gone stagnant.
