— Two people have been arrested as authorities try to identify a man’s body found wrapped in plastic in a southeast Texas mobile home.

The Galveston County sheriff’s office says autopsy results are pending on the victim who apparently died during some type of altercation.

The sheriff’s office says a man and a woman have been charged with evidence tampering and both were also detained Tuesday on immigration holds.

Kemah police Sunday asked deputies for help after the two suspects told officers about a body in the home in Bacliff, about 30 miles southeast of Houston.

Deputies located the wrapped body. Investigators say the residence had signs that someone tried to clean up the apparent crime scene.

Officials believe the male suspect owns the mobile home.
