SAN ANTONIO - A delivery driver made a disturbing discovery Monday morning when they saw a man's body on the side of a road in north Bexar County, according to the Bexar County Sheriff's Office.

Sheriff Javier Salazar said the driver found the body around 11:45 a.m. near the intersection of Rustic Oak and Running Springs, which is not far from Bulverde Road.

"It's undetermined whether it's a homicide scene or an accident scene," Salazar said. "We're still trying to determine if there is some trauma on (the man's) head area (and) if that is the result of a criminal activity or if he was struck by a car. It's just too early to tell at this point."

The man is described as being a heavyset man with numerous amount of tattoos on his upper body.

Salazar speculates the man's body may have been on the side road for less than 24 hours.

The Sheriff's Office's anti-gang intelligence unit is set to look over the man's tattoos that will help in possibly identifying the man.

If the man's death is ruled a homicide, Salazar said it will be the 11th in Bexar County in 2019, which would match last year's rate.

Anyone who may know the man and provide any information is urged to contact the BCSO at 210-335-6070 or send investigators an email at BCSOtips@bexar.org.
