A man found dead under a Haltom City bridge early Wednesday has been identified as a Plano resident, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner’s website on Friday.
The man was identified as Mark Allen Wilburn, 52, according to the website. A ruling on his death was still pending.
Haltom City detectives believe Wilburn’s death was medical and that he may have suffered a heart attack.
Wilburn had been staying in the area for some time, Haltom City police said.
Police responded to a report about the body under a bridge and near a creek at about 1 a.m. Wednesday near the 5600 block of Northeast Loop 820 in Haltom City.
A pedestrian walking in the area found the body, then walked to a nearby apartment complex and asked a resident to call 911, police said.
Police said the body had not been at the location for very long.
