The body of Missing Alabama Man Found Buried in Someone’s Backyard
Matt Gentry, the Cullman County Sheriff, declared during Monday’s press conference, that the counties deputies aided by the Hartselle Police Department are getting closer to concluding the tragic case of Daniel Ray Osborn II, the missing Alabama man.
According to Gentry, Osborn II was last seen alive on the 3rd of February in the company of his two best friends, 20-year-old Tyler Stephen Hudson and 19-year-old Andrew Jacob Maresh.
Since his disappearance, Osborn’s family and other close friends, posted messages on their social media accounts, begging people with information to call the authorities. Gentry commented that the accused men went so far as to participate in the family’s efforts to locate Osborn by posting comments on various press releases related to the man’s disappearance.
The authorities stated that on the 20th of February, the missing Alabama man communicated with his family. However, Gentry and his colleagues believe that Osborn II was already dead at that time and that the perpetrators might have used his phone to call off the search.
Several more weeks would pass without any sign from the Alabama man until a homeowner would call the authorities, claiming he has discovered something in his backyard.
The Cullman County deputies went to the location and discovered the missing Alabama man’s body. Although Gentry refused to disclose details pertaining to Osborn’s cause of death, he did mention something about Cullman County deputies and Hartselle agents ‘burning the midnight oil’ to uncover the man’s killers.
