City workers found Lacey’s body in a wooded area in the 7100 block of Webb Ferrell on January 3. It was so badly decomposed that the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office used fingerprint analysis to identify him.

Lacey’s family last saw him on December 17 as he left for work. They reported him missing two days later.

The 19-year-old’s car — a blue 2006 Dodge Magnum — was located the following weekend in the 4200 block South Hughes Avenue with blood inside.
