Body Found In Wichita Falls Identified

UPDATE: Police have confirmed that the body that was found near Old Iowa Park Road has been identified as 44-year-old Brent Allen.

An unidentified man was pulled from high water near the railroad tracks off Old Iowa Park Road in Wichita Falls. 

Wichita Falls Police Department Officials said that there was no identification on the body and that it has been soaking in water long enough that on-scene fingerprint I.D. was not an option. The body is heading to the Tarrant County, for an autopsy and identification.

"From what I've been told is that it is a substantial amount of water that the Scuba Team did have to respond out so the WFPD Scuba Team responded the Search and Rescue team from the Wichita Falls Fire Department responded," said Wichita Falls Police Information Officer Jeff Hughes.

Onlookers from across the street told Newschannel 6 that they believe the body to be that of missing 44-year-old Brent Allen.

"There is some speculation in the public as to the identity of this person, but from the police department perspective and our standpoint is that this body is an unidentified subject at this point we cannot identify this subject until positive identification has determined by Tarrant County there was no identification on the body," said Hughes.

The autopsy and identification could take days. WFPD said that they are continuing their investigation and have not ruled out foul play.
