Man's body found in school parking lot in northwest Harris County

HOUSTON - Deputies are investigating after the body of a man was found in a school parking lot in northwest Harris County Monday morning.

The body was found at Lola Mae Carter Academy in the 3100 block of Fallbrook, just east of Antoine, around 6 a.m., according to the Harris County Sheriff's Office.

Custodians arriving for work made the discovery as they pulled into the parking lot. A worker who stays overnight at a nearby construction site told construction superintendent Leo Ramirez he saw the women pull in to the parking lot and then back up upon seeing the body.

The worker told Ramirez prior to that there was nothing out of the ordinary.

"He didn't hear any gunshots; he didn't see anything out of normal. Usually there's a cop that stays there overnight. That's where he parks. But last night he wasn't there," said Ramirez.

The man's cause of death has not yet been released.
A spokesperson for Aldine Independent School District told Local 2 the victim appeared to be between 20 and 30 years old and was not affiliated with the school.
