Death Investigation (Arlington)
The Arlington Police Department responded to a homeowner’s call in the 4800 block of Brady Court around 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, January 9, 2016 in reference to a deceased man found lying in their backyard. The cause of death will be determined by the Tarrant County Medical Examiner. The homeowner did not know the individual and only found him in the morning after going in their backyard.
Detectives are investigating to determine whether reports of shots being fired in the area a few hours earlier might be related to this case. Anyone who resides in this area is asked to check video surveillance systems between the hours of 1 a.m and 4 a.m. that might have captured a dark colored SUV followed by two to three passenger car sedans.
Please contact Detective Byron Stewart at 817-459-5691 with any information. Tipsters can also remain anonymous by contacting Tarrant County Crime Stoppers at 817-469-TIPS (8477). The Tarrant County Medical Examiner will identify the deceased once next of kin notification has been made.
