The body of missing 26-year-old Delano Burkes was discovered floating in the Port of Houston on Friday after a two-week search.
The body of Delano Burkes, a 26-year-old man last seen leaving a Houston Heights-area bar earlier this month, was recovered Friday following an extended search.
According to FOX 26’s Matthew Seedorff, Burke’s family members confirmed that Burkes’ body was found floating in the Houston Ship Channel by employees of a tugboat operating in the waterway. Burkes was last seen on November 13 leaving McIntyre’s, a Heights-area bar roughly 15 miles from where his body was ultimately discovered. Law enforcement’s probe into Burkes’ disappearance is now considered a homicide investigation, according to Seedorff.
