On Nov. 22, 2023, the Bandera County Sheriff identified the body as 88-year-old Robert "Bob" Isaacks of Bandera. A search for the murder suspect is ongoing.
A UPS driver discovered the body around 3:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 17, on the median between the interstate’s westbound lanes and the access road east of Ozona.
