Sheriff: Body found could be that of missing spring breaker

Cameron County Sheriff Omar Lucio said a body found near a Matamoros beach could be that of missing Spring Breaker Justin Kirby Walker.

The body was discovered around 3 p.m. today. Lucio said the clothes on the body matched the description of what Walker was last seen wearing.

According to authorities, it appears the body had been in the water for about three to four days. Lucio said authorities are working with the Mexican Consulate and Mexican authorities to get fingerprints from the body to make a positive identification.

Walker, 18, of Kendall, Texas was last seen on Saturday leaving the Ultimate Music Fest at the Schlitterbahn Beach Waterpark. Authorities have been searching for him ever since.
