Dead body found on Aldine Mail Route

A man’s body was found behind the car wash and El Guera check cashing on Aldine Mail Route.

ALDINE – Family members were summoned by an unknown informant to an SUV located behind a car wash and check cashing business at 4000 Aldine Mail Route near JFK Blvd. last Wednesday Morning.

Sheriff’s Deputies said that the body was Jaime Diaz, 44, and was in the rear luggage area of the SUV. They said he showed signs of trauma and the death was not self-inflicted or natural. Various reports have speculated that he was shot, or run over, and his body deposited in the SUV. These reports were not confirmed by authorities. Diaz lived in the area, and his family said he sometimes disappeared for days, therefore his disappearance was not noted.

The SUV that Diaz was found in belonged to a man from Katy, and he is being sought for questioning.

The case is under investigation, and anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers, 713-222-TIPS (8477).
