Javier Gonzalez Garcia.
The victim is partly to blame – he relaxed hard around this savage-looking hobgoblin.
I wouldn’t be surprised if he got buried underneath that patio he built.
A Surry County man was charged with murder on Saturday after authorities discovered human remains believed to be those of another Surry County man who went missing last August.
Surry County Sheriff Steve Hiatt said authorities executed a search warrant at 321 Bowtie Lane on Saturday. During the search, detectives located human remains buried on the property that are believed to be those of Michael Dean Martin, who went missing in August of 2018. He was 35 years old.
Surry County detectives arrested Javier Gonzalez Garcia, 47, who lived on the property, and charged him with the murder of Martin. Garcia was being held in the Surry County Detention Center with no bond allowed.
Cynthia Martin, the mother of the man whose body was apparently found, said she’s still waiting to hear from authorities on how and why her son died.
Mike Martin and Garcia knew each other well, the mother said.
“He worked on and off for (Garcia) about two years,” Cynthia Martin said. “They went out of town working on carports.”
Martin said her son had helped build a patio at Garcia’s house.
