Mr. X is the nickname given to a murder victim discovered in Texas in 1972.


A farmer was investigating an area on his farm where buzzards were circling when he discovered the nude body of the decedent. He had been shot 3 times with a small calibre handgun and had been at the location for up to a week. Original investigations were rendered difficult due to foraging animals and insect activity.

The decedent was buried in a pauper's grave in Cleburne, TX. In 2013, his body was exhumed for further analysis and DNA collection.
