Man charged with five recent murders linked to newfound body

A body, which might be that of a woman who vanished in November, was found Wednesday after police questioned the man suspected of killing five car-wash employees this week.
The body was found in a grass-covered ditch near Lone Star Park in Irving, a Dallas suburb, said David Tull, a spokesman for the Irving Police Department.
Robert Wayne Harris has been arraigned on a capital murder charge in connection with the deaths of five Mi-T-Fine Car Wash employees early Monday morning. A sixth victim remains in critical condition at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas.
Harris was fired from the car wash just days before the shootings.
Information from Harris helped lead detectives to the body found Wednesday, Tull said.
Sandra Gaye Scott was reported missing Nov. 29, and her pickup was found Dec. 3. Harris was linked to her disappearance because his phone number was the last number on her pager, police said. He was questioned after she vanished but at the time there was not enough evidence against him, police have said.
A positive identification on the body has not been made because of the advanced state of decomposition. Charles Gaylor, a field agent for the Dallas County medical examiner’s office, said dental records will be used to determine if the body is Scott’s.
“We think it’s her,” Gaylor said.
Harris, 28, remained in custody Wednesday. His brother, William Harris, told The Dallas Morning News in Wednesday’s editions that the suspect broke into tears as he admitted to the car wash slayings.
Harris was fired from the car wash Friday after being arrested for allegedly exposing himself to two women at the business. He had been freed Sunday on $500 bail.
