FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: December 7, 2020

Identity of Body Found at Recycle Center

At approximately 9:45 am on December 3, 2020, employees who were sorting materials at a recycling center on FM 1327 observed a body on a conveyor belt and called 911. Deputies immediately responded and found the body of transient, RANDALL SHINAULT, 62.

An investigation into Shinault’s cause of death, and how his body ultimately ended up at the recycling center is underway. Evidence collected to this point doesn’t definitively indicate foul play was involved, but hasn’t ruled it out as a possibility either, therefore, the case continues to be worked as a suspicious death.

TCSO is asking anyone who knew Mr. Shinault and may have information about his whereabouts the days prior to December 3rd to call the TCSO tip line at 512-854-1444.
