SAN ANTONIO - The Bexar County Medical Examiner's office has identified a man found dead on the side of the road in North Bexar County.

Marc Ramirez, 22, was found deceased by a delivery driver July 15 near the intersection of Rustic Oak and Running Springs, not far from Bulverde Road. His cause of death was determined to be a gunshot wound to the head, the medical examiner said.

Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar said Monday that Ramirez may have been on the side of the road for less than 24 hours before the delivery driver made the discovery.
