Longview, Texas (KETK) — Longview Police have identified the body of a Smith County man that was found in a creek Thursday afternoon.
Police tell KETK the body is that of Timothy Liles, 25, of Longview.
Around 1:00 p.m., a meter reader stumbled upon Liles' body in the 2400 block of Loop 281. This is in the area of Brandon Avenue, across the loop from Goodwill.
Liles, formerly of Winona, listed his address as the Hiway 80 Rescue Mission in Longview as he had been staying there for the past few nights.
The case remains open pending autopsy results.
Officials do not immediately suspect foul play is involved, but they are waiting for the results of the autopsy before it is completely ruled out.
KETK will continue to update this story as more details emerge.
