The badly burned body of a man in his 20s or 30s was found Saturday in a vacant field at the end of Wixom Lane in far southeast Dallas, not far from a set of railroad tracks. His death is being treated as a homicide, but police haven't yet identified the cause of death, nor have they determined his identity. Pieces of him, they say, may be missing, though it's difficult to tell due to the condition of the body. It may have been in the field for several days.
