Missing Victoria man found dead

A 34-year-old Victoria man who had been missing since Saturday was found deceased in a field in rural Victoria County on Tuesday.

Justice of the Peace Stuart Posey ordered an autopsy on Bobby Erwin Shaw Jr. to determine the cause of his death.

Shaw was found in a field off Beck Road, said Lt. Jeff Meyer of the criminal investigation unit of the Victoria County Sheriff's Office.

Meyer said he could not elaborate about details in the case.

Shaw's family reported him missing Saturday.

"He was last seen by an acquaintance running from his residence into an open field toward U.S. 59 near Beck Road East in northeastern Victoria County with two handguns," according to the news release issued earlier in the week.

His family said he was displaying a strange behavior.
