Just after midnight on Saturday, a security guard made a gruesome discovery behind a Walmart in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The security guard found the naked, beheaded, castrated and mutilated body of a 42-year-old man police have identified as Clifford Miller.
Miller is originally from Oklahoma, and he left his two children and ex-wife two months ago to move to New Mexico and pursue a job offer, the Albuquerque Journal reported.
Albuquerque Police Department spokesman, Fred Duran, announced that homicide detectives do not believe Miller was killed at the location where he was found, and that the Office of the Medical Investigator will be determining how he died.
KOAT reported that police are looking into all leads, including the possibility of drug cartels being behind the murder.
Miller was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled drug in 1994, and unlawful cultivation of marijuana in 1995.
The family of Miller has been notified of his death.
