Missing man found dead in marijuana field south of Fort Worth

Alvarado, Texas

ALVARADO, Texas (AP) - Authorities say the body of a missing man was found next to a hand-dug grave at a marijuana grow site south of Fort Worth.

The body of 45-year-old Antonio Galvan was found Monday morning in a wooded area behind a house in Alvarado.

Johnson County Sheriff Bob Alford says deputies found Galvan fully clothed with an apparent gunshot wound and dirt thrown over part of his body.

Deputies had gone to the property after Galvan's family reported him missing and said he might be at that property.

Alford says authorities found cultivated plants throughout the property and a large indoor hydroponic grow house.

Alford says two men at the property who were taken into custody are considered persons of interest in the death
