Missing Fannin County Man Found Dead

Posted:

FANNIN COUNTY, TX -- It's been more than two years since he was last seen, but now the mystery of a missing man has been solved after his skull was identified.

Deputies say Gary Stewart, 43, had an argument with his girlfriend in March 2010, then ran away from the house on FM 68 in the Gober area before they showed up.

In December, hunters found Stewart's skull across a creek on a nearby property.

"The creek about always has some water in it, so if he crossed that creek in that very cold weather it may be the weather is what happened to him," Sheriff Donnie Foster says.

Foster says foul play is not suspected. The skull and several bone fragments were sent to a forensics lab which identified them as Stewart.
