Pablo Mora was last seen alive on September 30 as he was leaving his home in Oak Lawn. Two weeks later, his car was found at Ray Roberts State Park in Pilot Point.

Dallas police sent out an alert around that time looking for information on the whereabouts.of Mora, a psychologist at UT-Arlington studying the effects of postpartum depression on inner-city women, among other things.

Now they know. DPD sent an update a few minutes ago announcing that a passerby discovered Mora's body in a wooded area at Ray Roberts State Park on November 17.

His body was transported to the Denton County Medical Examiner's office, where cause of death will be determined. The Texas Parks & Wildlife Department is handling the follow-up investigation.
