Yesterday, the Sheriff said his investigators stated they suspected foul play. But this afternoon, the Sheriff was mum on exactly what his investigators were looking for at the home.
A report reached us that Torrez’s gray 2007 Ford F-150 pickup was located in Ballinger. Ballinger Police Chief Stanley Maresch referred us to Sheriff Jones for information and would not confirm this.
The Tom Green County Sheriff is leading the investigation.
“At the conclusion of this investigation, we will issue some kind of statement. But at the current time we have no further comment,” Jones said.
