After a corpse was discovered in northwest Lubbock, police in Lubbock County are conducting an investigation.
According to a KCBD crew there, police were called to the intersection of CR 1900 and FM 2641.
The deceased was recognized by investigators as Cameron Long, age 21, who had gone missing over the weekend. Long’s final semester at Texas Tech was in 2021, as reported by the university.
Long went missing for the first time on Sunday night. He was last spotted leaving a club close to 4th Street and Slide Road about 2:30 a.m. on Friday. At 3:29 a.m., he was last heard from.
Authorities made the following disclosures:
Major Crimes Unit detectives with the Lubbock Police Department are no longer looking for Cameron Long, age 21, as he is no longer regarded as missing.
Family members called the police to report Long missing for the first time on Sunday, May 7th, at 6:28 p.m. On Monday, May 8th, the department issued a release asking for assistance from the public.
On May 9, late in the afternoon, Long’s body was discovered in a field in North Lubbock County. The Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office discovered his car at 7:07 a.m. on Friday, May 5th, in response to complaints of a check welfare in the vicinity of FM 2641 and County Road 6200.
Law enforcement was able to link Friday’s finding of the vehicle to Long thanks to the case’s publicity. His body was discovered today when officers went back to the spot and searched the surrounding area. The body was far from the location of the vehicle.
There is no evidence of wrongdoing at this time. The Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office is looking into the circumstances of his death, though.
