(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested and charged with concealing a human corpse after being caught digging up the body of a kidnapped man, police in Texas said.

The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office said that 60-year-old Eugene Boston, was caught in the act of digging up the human body on private land in St. Hedwig.

The body was badly decomposed. The body was positively identified as 29-year-old Christopher Varela. Varela was last seen getting into his car before being kidnapped. His family reported that they received ransom demands from unknown individuals.

Although there were three cars in the yard of the property located at the 12800 block of FM 1346, neighbors said that no one lives in the house. They said that the owner had rented the property to a couple, but the tenants moved out a while ago.

Boston was booked into the Bexar County Jail on charges of concealing a human body. Charges may be added once more information becomes available.

As of Monday morning, Boston remained behind bars with bond set at $75,000.
