GEORGETOWN, Texas (KXAN) — A man accused of hiding a missing Georgetown man’s body in a drainage tunnel is now being charged with murder in the case.
Harvey Huber, 50, went missing in late February. 48-year-old Jimmy Tschoerner was arrested in March for tampering with or fabricating physical evidence with intent to impair a human corpse, a second-degree felony.
DNA evidence obtained from Huber Automotive Shop, a tow truck operated by Tschoerner and a location along Interstate 35, where Tschoerner’s cell phone records placed him the night Huber went missing, came back with a nearly 100% match to Huber’s children, police said.
Additionally, police said a witness came forward to report that Tschoerner told them “Harvey is not a problem anymore,” and further explained, “I killed him.”
Huber’s family was notified of the murder charge, police said.
