Relatives of the 47-year-old dead man -- who is from Gonzales and does not appear to have a criminal record -- had not been located as of Tuesday, McMinn said. His name will not be released until those relatives are found, she said.Gosh, they're having difficulty finding the relatives? Ya think? Nobody is stepping forward and proudly saying "Oh, yeah, that's Cousin Jose, the baby raper"?
To find the next of kin, locate the town in Mexico from which his folks hail, and look for the people wearing Groucho glasses or perhaps bags over their heads. Failing that, check the courts for recent changes of name.
Regarding the grand jury hearing, I cannot imagine a jury in Texas, criminal or civil, that would not give this guy a serious dead pervert discount in this obvious case of misdemeanor manslaughter. Time served and fifty bucks to the next-of-kin. Next case.
