AMARILLO, Texas (AP) - Police used DNA to identify a man whose head was found three years ago in the back of a city garbage truck.
The remainder of Kevin Thomas Walsh's body still hasn't been found but police hope that knowing more about his background may provide clues about his death. Walsh's family provided DNA samples for matching.
Police continue to investigate Walsh's death as suspicious.
In late March 2006, a city worker saw a head in the back of a garbage truck and called police. Walsh, 39, was homeless when he was arrested March 9, 2006, for shoplifting. He was released from jail seven days later.
