These Tattoos Belong To a Murder Victim Set On Fire in Southeast Dallas. Recognize Them?

Categories: Crime

Dallas Police
The badly burned body of a man in his 20s or 30s was found Saturday in a vacant field at the end of Wixom Lane in far southeast Dallas, not far from a set of railroad tracks. His death is being treated as a homicide, but police haven't yet identified the cause of death, nor have they determined his identity. Pieces of him, they say, may be missing, though it's difficult to tell due to the condition of the body. It may have been in the field for several days.

The tattoos below, however, remain intact. If you recognize them, call the homicide unit at 214-671-3661 or 214-671-3624.

The guys that did this deserves more than hell. I just watched it on 48 hours, I can not believe how evil some people can be. I pray for his family through this hard time. I couldnt even imagine what you are all going through. And his poor daughter. This really is hearbreaking!

RIP Jb. I didn't know him, but he was the son my grandfather's friend. I can't even imagine how hard it must be to lose such a young loved one with the circumstances surrounding it. I just want to give my best regards to the family at this time. Also, just throwing this out there, but doesn't that rat look like one of the weasels from the movie 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit?'.

I am just wondering if there has been any updated news on this? I hope whoever did this gets caught they don't belong in society!!! I knew John from my past...I haven't seen him in years but v My brother was friends with John and actually seen him a couple months ago. This is so terrible I can't get it off my mind bc it's shocking I knew him. My heart goes out to his family and he is in my thoughts and prayers. Some of my friends were close w/ John and know his family. I don't know John's family so I don't want to be nosey I feel since close friend its not my place to ask anything and I know they must be dealing with a lot but I am very concerned. Ive asked around to mutual friends of John's that know his family and was told there are no leads or updates. Justice needs to be served the family deserves closure. To all the people posting negative comments about John have some respect for his family and stop judging someone you don't know personally. RIP Johnboy

Be nice people. I knew this boy his entire life... He was a great son, brother, nephew and friend to countless people. He was very LOVED. Those of you speaking negatively need to realize the pain his family is going thru. Yes, he made some mistakes in his lifetime, who hasn't.,,,,But no one deserves what he got, except the persons responsible for his death. In any crime, JUSTICE should be an eye for an eye!!! So, regardless of what you think, please be respectful of the family that loves him! May God have mercy on your soul John Boy, Rest in peace!

I didn't know this person however I do know of someone that I was close to that was murdered years ago and thinking back on his family and friends that cared for him and the pain they endured was unbearable. Just think of your son or brother or father and this happening to them and others were commenting in such a distasteful manner it would certainly hurt you too. Be more respectful to others that did lose a son, brother or friend. These posts show just how ugly the world can be. This is just an opinion coming from someone who lost someone to a terrible situation as this one.

can be.

One other thing his crimes were when he was 25 committed in 2010 so i dont know about u guys but that is not so far in his past and if he did something to someone say another disabled or elderly or a child then i think this made sense obv he didnt spend enough time in jail in 2010

 He was no angel.  He has been arrested for drug possession, burglary, theft and injury to a child/elderly/disabled/with intent of bodily injury.   You can see his mugshot at http://www.bustedmugshots.com/...

COPS ARE INVESTIGATING AND WILL FIND THE PERSON'S THAT DID THIS. THERE WILL NOT BE A FUNERAL FOR AT LEAST ANOTHER WEEK OR 2 WEEKS. JOHN'S BODY HAS NOT BEEN RELEASED TO HIS FAMILY YET. I SPOKE TO JOHN'S SISTER, JOHN'S FATHER AND HIS FAMILY ARE HAVING A VERY HARD TIME. KNOWING WHAT ALL WAS DONE TO JOHN IS VERY DISTURBING FOR HIS FAMILY AND ANYONE THAT KNEW JOHN. I KNEW JOHN SINCE HE WAS A BABY, BUT I HAVE NOT SEEN HIM IN MANY YEARS, I'M GOOD FRIENDS WITH HIS DAD AND LOTS OF HIS RELATIVES. THIS IS A TERRIBLE CRIME DONE TO JOHN ALLEN, I JUST HOPE HE WAS ALREADY DEAD WHEN THE MEAN AZZ HOLES DID THE WORST TO HIM. I HOPE JOHN ALLEN FELT NO PAIN. I HOPE JUSTICE IS SERVED AND THE COPS FIND THE PERSON'S THAT DID THIS TO JOHN ALLEN FLATT. R.I.P JOHN ALLEN FLATT.

I knew John only through someone who loved him dearly. her,her family, his family will never be the same. He was so kind and loving it is hard to comprehend. I hurt for all concerned and he does not deserve to be belittled. I cry for a little girl that misses him and is learning about heaven too early.

OBVIOUSLY KIMBEV69 YOU LOOKED UP JOHN'S RECORD, BUT THAT DON'T MEAN YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT HE DID. I SAW HIS RECORD, ITS NO BIG DEAL. BUT IT DOESN'T MEAN HE SHOULD DIE THE WAY HE DID. HE HASN'T BEEN IN TROUBLE SINCE 2005 IF YOU READ HIS RECORD RIGHT YOU DUMBAZZ, OBVIOUSLY YOU DIDN'T READ IT RIGHT. I HAVE SEEN THE ACTUAL COURT RECORDS, AND YES YOUR NOT READING HIS RECORD RIGHT SO BEFORE YOU GO SHOOTING YOUR MOUTH OFF THAT HE DESERVES TO DIE THEY WAY HE DID, LOOK OUT KARMA CAN COME BACK ON YOU!!!!!

NO ONE AND I MEAN NO ONE DESERVES WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM, AND ALSO YOU NEED TO THINK ABOUT HIS FAMILY, HIS FAMILY DAMN SURE DID'NT DESERVE THIS. THINK ABOUT IT PERP WALK FAN WHEN GOD TAKES YOU, WOULD YOU LIKE PEOPLE TO SAY THIS ABOUT YOU, I REALLY DON'T THINK SO. SO BEFORE YOU SPEAK WHY DON'T YOU THINK. I WILL SAY TO YOU GUEST THERE IS ALWAYS A REASON FOR EVERYTHING. RIP: JOHN BOY YOU WILL BE TRULY MISSED................

It doesn't matter what he has done or what his criminal record says. NO one should have to had this done to them, NO one. This is a HORRIBLE CRIME done to John. His family is hurting so bad, and his friend's too. I HOPE the Police find who or whom all did this to John and Justice be served. RIP John Allen Flatt

Tortured and burnt ... he didn't deserve to die like that.  And just as John Boy did his time and had consequences to his actions from years ago, the person responsible for this heinous murder should, too.  He was a good hearted guy, and to those that knew him and were friends with him over the years, the kid always had a smile on his face, a passion for those he loved and cared about...and he definitely deserved a shot in life.  So many others turn their lives around from the reckless ways of youth...and I would think people should be more considerate of that...rather than passing judgment and dismissing his murder as though it was deserved.

who gives a fuck what he's done, it doesnt have anything to do with what someone has done to him.  Its  not right.  down right fucked up.

U know what stfu and do something with ur life. Nobody deserves this.. My homeboy was by far perfect but he was a awesome man.. So ur comment explains probably the type of person u r.. Worthless piece of shit ..

Who cares what he was "into" that isn't my business and NO ONE deserves to die the way he did not even you. He deserves justice, whoever did this to him is evil and I pray you never have to go thru something like this with one of your friends or family members. Not all of us are "thugs" or "ghetto" we all took different paths in life but eh you wouldn't know about respect if it slapped you in the face.

I have known John Allen since he was a baby, a small boy. I know his Dad and many of his relatives. I have not seen John Allen in a long time,  I just always remember he was such a beautiful baby boy, beautiful little boy and a good looking young man. I know his Dad John is hurting, hurting so bad by what happen to John Allen. As of yesterday, the Police have arrested one guy for the death of John Allen Flatt

Brantley Hargrove, why would you put this on the Dallas Observer? How could anyone see this, most people dont read this. Where did you get the pictures?

The identification has been made.  Detectives were contacting his parents last night, as I understand it.  I've also made contact with the author of one the articles...there is a candlelight vigil tonight.

HE HAS NOT HURT ANY ELDERLY/CHILD OR DISABLED PERSON AS YOU HAVE STATED IN YOUR COMMENTS. BUT DOES IT MATTER IF HE HAS A RECORD? NO, IF YOU KNEW EXACTLY WHAT ALL WAS DONE TO HIM, AND HAD A BRAIN YOU WOULDN'T SAY HE DESERVE TO DIE. JOHN WAS SOMEONE'S ONLY SON, BROTHER, COUSIN, NEPHEW AND BEST FRIEND TO SO MANY PEOPLE AND THEY KNEW HIM, KNEW HIM WELL. HE DID NOT DESERVE TO DIE THE WAY HE DID!!!
