Murder Of 60-Year-Old Roman Rodriguez

A Texas man has been accused of killing his mother’s ex-boyfriend, who authorities say was dragged behind a truck before the entire vehicle was set on fire.

Upon arrival, authorities found the body of a man – later identified as Rodriguez – behind the burned-out vehicle, Capt. Ken DeFoor, a public information officer with the sheriff’s office, said in a statement. Rodriguez was at the home of Hoffpauir and his mother, Timey Ann Cole when a “domestic disturbance occurred due to a former relationship between Rodriquez and Cole,” DeFoor said.

During the altercation, Rodriguez was “severely beaten into submission by Hoffpauir” and tied up with a tow strap that was attached to his pick-up truck on one end, according to DeFoor. Authorities allege that Hoffpauir then dragged Rodriguez from the home for a lengthy distance, before abandoning the truck and setting it on fire.

DeFoor said it’s unclear when the victim was killed during the incident and an “autopsy will reveal if Rodriguez was deceased before he was dragged by the truck or at some point later.”
