"This is unusual, the first time, we've ever seen a dead body here."
Samson and his family of five are the only residents, living in this un-devloped housing subdivision off FM 2812, and Brush Line road, north of Edinburg.
He says, late this afternoon, some folks drove up to his house, and told him what they found.
"They say they were looking at some lots here and they found the dead body at the end of the road, so they came by because we were the only ones."
"He was talking to 911, and then he could not give directions so i took over the phone and gave directions to 911."

gun shot and stab wounds.
