BEXAR COUNTY, Texas - UPDATE: The medical examiner's office identified the man found as 69-year-old Jose Martinez. A cause of death has not been released. 

ORIGINAL STORY: Bexar County Sheriff’s Office deputies are investigating after a body was found in north Bexar County near TPC Parkway and Bulverde Road.

A man and woman were walking their dog when they made the discovery about 1 p.m. Saturday, according to deputies.

Investigators were on the scene for several hours but released few details about the victim.

"Further information will have to come from the Bexar County medical examiner's office as to who this is and what happened," BCSO spokeswoman Rosanne Hughes said.

A man who lives in the neighborhood and frequently uses the Bulverde Village Property Owners Association Pathway spoke to KSAT 12 News.

"The only thing we ever really worry about back here is coyotes. We don't usually walk too much at night because it's not lit. So during the day, I don't know. I'm going to have to look and find out more information,” Michael Cantu said. "God, I hope somebody knows something."

Anyone with information is asked to call the BCSO.
