WOODVILLE – On the morning of Thursday, March 23, a deceased man was found in the roadway near Woodville.

According to Tyler County Sheriff Bryan Weatherford, deputies with the Tyler County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched at approximately 5:30 a.m. to the southbound lane of US Highway 69 south, near County Road 1065, which is about two miles south of the Woodville city limits.

Weatherford later released the identity of the deceased man as Loren Bywaters Clay, II, a 71-year-old Village Mills resident.

Weatherford said the man was laying on the southbound shoulder next to a truck which was facing to the north, and in the investigation, TCSO collected multiple eyewitness statements, physical evidence, photographs, video footage and an autopsy was conducted.

“The Tyler County Sheriff’s Office has found no evidence of criminal activity in connection with the death of the individual,” Weatherford said.

Evidence indicated that Clay was struck by a passing vehicle sometime between 5:25 and 5:27 a.m

    Did he die on the side of the road and then was hit by a car or did someone hit him and then contacted police?
