YZNAGA, Texas – An investigation currently underway after a body is found in a ditch near Santa Rosa.

The Cameron County Sheriff’s department says 34-year-old Alejandro Galvan Jr. was found dead Sunday morning after being reported missing.

Sheriff Lucio tells Local 23 News that Galvan had gone for a night of drinking when he and a family member stopped to urinate at the levee near FM 506 and North Levee Road.

It was then that Galvan allegedly fell and was left behind by his relative after his relative assumed Galvan had gone home walking.

Ernesto Galvan was brought in for questioning and remains under Cameron County custody.

The sheriff says the autopsy results show no signs of foul play.
