TEXARKANA, Texas -- A man found dead in a Bowie County house Saturday has been identified as William Leon White, 66, of Texarkana, Texas.
White was found dead on the floor of a relative's house in the Wamba community, according to the Bowie County Sheriff's Office.
White was related to the occupants of the home and is often homeless, travelling by foot, according to BCSO.

Wamba is an unincorporated community located about 7 miles north of Texarkana and is often accessed via Richmond Road.
