The Mexico Department of Public Safety said there were two fires and that security camera footage showed a person believed to be Brandon Spears "about five blocks from Fairground Road, less than an hour after the second fire."
Additionally, camera footage reportedly showed Spears "attempting to get into parked cars or looking for shelter." The Department of Public Safety noted that the weather around the time of the incident was "dangerously cold."
According to the Department of Public Safety, on Sunday, March 19, at approximately 3:45 p.m., officials responded to the 1700 block of Fairground Road to a report of a human body found. There, authorities reportedly found Spears dead in an unlocked shed.
The Department of Public Safety said they were able to identify Spears based on his "clothing, tattoos, and general build."
The Boone County Medical Examiner will perform an autopsy, but the Department of Public Safety said there were no "visible traumatic injuries to the body and no apparent link between Spears and the owners of the shed."
