A shoe found with human remains Saturday morning near the shoreline of Lake Travis matches a shoe found about a mile away, close to Windy Point Park, in November, Travis County sheriff’s office spokesman Roger Wade said Tuesday.
About 10 a.m. Saturday, a boater called 911 after the tennis shoe was discovered on land a few feet from the lake, in an area between Hippie Hollow and the Oasis restaurant that is accessible only by boat, Wade said. Detectives with the sheriff’s office went to the scene to collect the remains, Wade said, and they searched the area for other evidence but did not find any.
Wade said he could not say what type of remains was found inside the shoe. Remains also were found in the shoe discovered earlier, he said. Wade said investigators think that the DNA is from the same person. The remains were sent to the University of North Texas for analysis, Wade said, adding that detectives would not speculate on who the person was until they receive results. – sm
