Authorities seeking tips on ETX cold case
Athens, Texas (KETK) — Authorities are looking for more clues in a Henderson County cold case where a man's body was found months after his disappearance.
Theodore "Ted" Hunt was reported missing from his home at 500 U.S. Highway 175 in Eustace where he was last seen at the end of February or the first of March. Hunt's property, an adjoining small lake and surrounding property were searched with cadaver dogs on two occasions and Hunt was not found. Investigators were led to believe Hunt's disappearance may not have been voluntary and the case remained open.
On November 21, 2013, a house on the property was being demolished and excavated with heavy equipment. Skeletal remains were found on the property, and through DNA testing, they were identified as human and that of Theodore "Ted" Hunt.
Investigators are looking for a vehicle Hunt was driving prior to his disappearance. The vehicle is described as a 1983 cream color Mercury 4-door and is believed to have been sold from Hunt's property in the months following his disappearance.
