By  | 

COLBERT, Okla. (KXII) -- Bryan County Sheriff Johnny Christian 24 year-old Daniel Flores is the man who was found dead.

"It was confirmed through dental records at the medical examiners office," says Bryan County Sheriff Johnny Christian.

Flores was last seen on May 6th in Durant. One week later, two children playing in a Colbert field found Flores' body, stripped of his clothes.

"Just ready to put him to peace and I thank God for answering, knowing my prayers and his family's prayers just bringing him to us," says Daniel Flores' fiance Amanda Neurenberg.

Neurenberg says she hasn't shared the news with their two year-old daughter Gianna.

"Whoever done this they need to be caught," says Neurenberg. "Justice needs to be done because he doesn't deserve what happened to him."

Neurenberg says she and Flores planned on getting married at the end of May and are expecting their second child together in December.

"I was sad not only for me but for my children because they won't get to know their father," says Neurenberg.

At this time no arrests have been made and his cause of death is still unknown, but investigators say foul play is involved.

"At this point, anyone could be a suspect we are continuing following leads anything and everyone," says Sheriff Christian. "The investigation is ongoing, we're gonna continue to follow leads and requesting anyone with any information no matter how small they think it is to contact the sheriff's office."

Bryan County Sheriff says if you have any information on this case, contact the Bryan County Sheriff's Office at (580) 924-3000, or Durant Police at (580) 924-3737.
