ENRIQUE ESCOBEDO COMMITS APPARENT SUICIDE
 
THE HERALD IS REPORTING THE SAME - APPARENT SUICIDE WHILE QUOTING THE POLICE
 
This is why you do not print a story like a puppy dog having his first orgasm.  Yes you have a great story, but if a 20 minute delay in reporting is needed to get the truth, then you hold for 20 minutes and make the necessary calls. 
 
A very reliable source has called me and told me JP Linda Salazar is declaring the death of Enrique Escobedo an apparent suicide.   The allegation is his brother Jaime went to his house with an extra key after Enrique failed to respond to all phone calls.  When I initially heard the story I thought a break-in and murder because the allegation is he was found naked.  This fact has me bothered with the initial report of apparent suicide.  Until a full autopsy the "apparent suicide" is just an initial finding.
 
This being naked issue delayed my story.  I really needed to follow up with a second source. 
 
My source is solid.  But if I later learn he was murdered I will change the story.  But my source is close enough to the scene to be reliable.  My source is telling me the BPD Chief and Linda Salazar are on scene.
 
Officially, pending an autopsy the claim is apparent suicide with a gun shot to the head. 
 
People know very little about this issue, but it is not at all unusual for someone who is about to commit suicide to be very calm even the day before.  In their mind they have found peace for what ever is bothering them and the suicide is a relief.  It can actually be a moment of relief for them - the pain goes away.
 
Other sources are telling me Enrique was at an event last night and all appeared well.  But this is consistent with someone who is at peace with the idea of suicide.
 
I am very bothered with him being naked.  So once the autopsy is complete the official cause of death may be murder - we have to wait.  I can only report what is being reported as the interim cause of death.

Very sad news. When I was in high school, Enrique and I worked together loading feed onto trailers and selling farm and ranch supplies during the summer time. He was in college at the time. We had some good laughs. He was always very positive. He will be missed. Rest in peace my friend.

Guys really, negative comments at this time - you are pathetic.

This is obviously an ongoing story. I am working on it. But I will tell you if the final autopsy shows suicide and it is related to a private matter - the BV will not cover it. A public matter is different. But anything private will not be covered by the BV

According to the Brownsville Herald's report, Escobedo had obviously studied the act of committing suicide in an extremely efficient manner. Sad, indeed.

There is absolutely nothing in the Herald article which could lead any rational person to thing Escobedo studied how to commit suicide.

(Salazar said the bullet appeared to have entered the neck near the jawbone, going up.)

The above copied from the Brownsville Herald article. The fact that he didn't just put the gun to his head and pulled the trigger must mean something, Bobby. To me it means that he ensured that there was no chance of mistaking his objective. Studied? Indeed.

I am not saying the intial report is wrong - I am always careful about these things - and you are wrong - it could have been staged - the odds are it was not staged - but until we have a final report the idea it oculd have been staged is a real possibility.

The naked thing bothers me - but them if it were me you would found me naked - so maybe it means nothing.

I am going to get into more of this with this morning's post

But to say he studied it is just without merit. This form of suicide 0in fact staged suicide) is on TV or in the movies periodically.

Of the blood pattern shows he was standing it is one thing - but what if it shows he was already on the ground? We know nothing of any of this.

Again - my nature is to report what the JP initially states based on the initial assessment by the BPD, and then wait for a final report.

You and Erasmo are worthless worms. Both of you thrive on misery to get viewership. You bash people and then act like you care. You both are worthless individuals. You are not informing people you are just bashing and speculating.

(- it could have been staged - the odds are it was not staged - but until we have a final report )

Let's also not forget that he was a medical physician (aka Doctor), in Mexico so that he, if anybody, should know what a suicide entailed.

I have made is clear I am rejecting he negative comments. I have only reported the facts.

What you want is for people to believe something which is preliminary is fact - it is not. I am just trying to make sure people understant that just because something appears one way does not make it fact until the investigation is done.

I am not allowing for vulgarities or homophobic comments like your buddy Montoya - now try and post your lies over there.

Like Father Ricardo, there will never be any answers. God be with them.

I would assume he was proficient with fire arms being that he and his brother owned a handgun training center. If it was a suicide he would be well versed from both a medical and fire arms training standpoint. Very sad, I didn't always agree with him but enjoyed his company very much! He will be missed.
This May or may not be related to the purging of the political system in Cameron County by Federal inquiries. Hopefully, others will deal with this issue in a better way if that's the case.

We have Marchan, his daughter and now presumptively Escobedo. We cannot allow this to go without a real conversation which informs people there is nothing wrong with having clinical depression and they have positive real choices. I hope we can now have this conversation as a community with three very high profile suicides
