A man claimed a song told him to kill a victim and leave his body in a storage unit, police said.
Initially, the fire was called in by a neighbor, KCBD reported. Once firefighters were at the scene, they saw smoke coming from one of the storage units.
The firefighters worked to put the fire out and once it was, they discovered a body inside. The body was later identified as 21-year-old Cypress Ramos, officials said.
During the investigation, detectives determined a suspect in the case, which was 32-year-old Allan Montemayor.
A warrant was issued for his arrest and he was booked into the Lubbock County Detention Center on Feb. 12 and charged with murder, officials said.
According to KLBK, surveillance video showed a truck with two people arriving at the storage unit, but only Montemayor left.
Montemayor also locked the unit before leaving.
When police asked Montemayor what happened, he shrugged and said, "isn't it apparent," KLBK reported.
The suspect told police Ramos came at him with a bat and he responded, the news station reported. Montemyaor also said a song told him to kill Ramos, but that Ramos also heard a song telling him to kill Montemayor.
The police did not detail the song.
