An investigation is under way to determine the circumstances surrounding the death of 53-year old Valde Soto Jr. of Stockdale. Family members found his body March 2 in the Alum Creek off S.H. 123 north of the city, said Wilson County Sheriff Joe D. Tackitt Jr.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Thomas Silvas had found Soto’s vehicle abandoned earlier in the evening and the vehicle was towed. When Silvas returned to the sheriff’s office in Floresville to complete his report, Soto’s sister contacted officials to report that she had not seen Soto since Feb. 28. Family members called back at 8:47 p.m. to report that they searched the area near where Soto’s vehicle had been parked and that they found his body in the creek.

Tackitt said preliminary indications lead the case’s Investigator Gary Lauglin Jr. to believe that there are no signs of foul play. However, an autopsy is scheduled for March 4.

And one other thing, Black Ghost; it's not about if the outcome would have changed. It's about dignity; if you had someone missing and found out that a deputy had a vehicle towed, then went back AT NIGHT and found your love... More ›

Black Ghost, are you a "servant?" You see, "servants" serve; in this case the tax payer. They "serve" like a waiter serves a glass of tea. If I am the one paying, the "servant"... More ›

Some people use the Texas Penal Code, some use Webster. The term servant indicates the presence of a master. Not for me and I don't need the state of Texas to define words for me. :-) State definition of words only apply... More ›

The use of the term 'servant' indicates disdain toward public employees and certainly affects the credibility of comments about their actions. Vehicles are abandoned for a variety of reasons and reasonable persons would... More ›

Some will always try and justify the shortfalls of servants who are paid by the tax payer. I guess they will accept the same situation if it happened to them as an "honest mistake." We know they won't. I would... More ›

Some are always looking for a chance to criticize the actions of others. I suppose that for every abandoned vehicle, they want law enforcement to initiate a ground search of the surrounding area. Of course, then they could... More ›
