Chief Deputy David Soward of the Atascosa County Sheriff's Office confirmed that the search for 19-year-old Manuel De Los Santos Reyes Galeas ended today at 1 p.m. He was found dead in a creek, approximately 1/2 mile from where he allegedly murdered former Atascosa County Commissioner Tommy Shearrer, 54, on Oct. 10.

Galeas was the subject of an exhaustive search by deputies from Bexar and Atascosa counties. A warrant was issued for his arrest in connection with Shearrer’s murder, after the area native was found shot to death inside his pickup truck on St. Augustine Road near F.M. 3006, approximately 8 miles southwest of the Wilson County line near the St. Augustine community.

Galeas also was the subject of two arrest warrants from Bexar County, which charged him with deadly conduct with a firearm and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, in connection with an incident earlier that day. Bexar County sheriff’s Investigator Louis Antu said Galeas allegedly shot at his girlfriend near her home on U.S. 281 before fleeing to Atascosa County. The two incidents are not believed to be connected, he said.
