With the identity unknown since its discovery on Thursday, June 13, the badly decomposed body that was found beneath a bridge on FM 2122 in southwest Lamar County has now been identified by officials, although the cause and manner of death are still to be determined by the investigators and the Medical Examiner, according to Sheriff Scott Cass.
On Friday, June 14, the Medical Examiner from American Forensics in Mesquite, Texas confirmed that the deceased has been identified as 27-year-old Tramaine Jarrod Kellum, an African American male who was last spoken to over the phone by his wife on June 8 and officially reported missing to the Paris Police Department on Monday, June 10.
“The cause and manner of death are pending at this time, awaiting the Medical Examiners preliminary report. The case is still under investigation and the Sheriff’s Office is currently working this as a homicide,” Sheriff Cass said. “Sheriff investigators, along with Ranger McNeal will continue working with Paris Police detectives assigned to the missing person case to apprehend those responsible for this violent crime.”
Investigators are still looking for Kellum’s vehicle – a silver 1995 Mercury Grand Marquis, bearing TX license plates BX8-P511.
Anyone that has seen this vehicle, knows of its whereabouts or has any other information regarding this case, please contact the Lamar County Sheriff’s Office, the Paris Police Department or Crime Stoppers.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family,” Sheriff Cass said in closing.
At around 9:40 am on Thursday, June 13, TxDOT workers — before starting routine road construction — reported to the Lamar County Sheriff’s Department the mysterious finding of a badly decomposed body beneath a bridge on FM 2122 in Southwestern Lamar County.
“TXDOT employees were working on a portion of FM 2122 when the body was found,” stated Sheriff Scott Cass. “Sheriff’s Deputies, Sheriff Investigators and Texas Ranger Stacy McNeal responded to the scene and found a deceased person underneath the bridge next to a pylon that was in an advanced stage of decomposition,” he continued.
Sheriff Investigators and the Texas Department of Public Safety reconstruction team worked the crime scene before releasing it sometime around 5:30pm, according to officials at the scene.
With the assistance of TxDOT employees, the Sheriff’s Department was about to maintain traffic control on the bridge, as the Paris Fire Department assisted in the body recovery from the creek area.
“A Local funeral home transported the body to American Forensics in Mesquite for a full autopsy,” Cass said.
Now that the identity has been obtained, the Medical Examiners office will now determine both the cause and manner of death.
“With a body in the environment like this for an extended amount of time and being that it is subject to so many external forces that could slow down or speed up decomposition, so it makes it difficult to even say for sure how long the body has been there,” Sheriff Cass state.
The Sheriff’s Office was aware of a male subject missing out of the Paris Police Department, according to officials with the case.
Paris Detectives working the missing persons case were also on the scene, and Sheriff Investigators and Texas Ranger McNeal are working with Police Detectives gaining unique identifiers from the Police Department missing person case to help determine motive, cause of death and the location of the deceased’s vehicle he was last seen in.
“A missing person report had been reported to the Paris Police Department on June 10, declaring the individual last seen on Saturday, June 8,” stated Paris PD Public Information Officer Curtiss Garrett.
Before more thorough investigation, it was unclear at that time whether the missing person case was related to the deceased body found under the bridge.
“The Sheriff’s Office is investigating this as a homicide,” Sheriff Cass stated. ”The investigation is still in the early stages and continuing.”
The deceased was pronounced at the scene by Justice of the Peace Cindy Ruthart.
