A 70-year-old Marble Falls man, the victim of an Aggravated Robbery, died from Pneumonia, an illness police say is directly tied to what happened to him on June 22. The victim, whose name Marble Falls Police are not releasing, was walking through a vacant lot like he did everyday to a nearby convenience store. Before the elderly man reached his destination, Marble Falls Police say he was intercepted by a large Hispanic man who demanded his wallet. Captain Glenn Henson with M.F.P.D. says the man they’re looking for hit the 70-year-old man in the head, took the $10 dollars in his wallet and threw it back at him.
The victim did not call Police to report the crime. A few hours later he complained about a headache and then collapsed. The 70-year-old was in the hospital and then rehab for a few weeks and showed signs of improvement.
According to the Travis County Medical Examiner’s Office the 70-year-old died Thursday more than likely of Pneumonia, an illness which M.F.P.D. says is directly tied to his attack.
Marble Falls Detectives have reason to believe the man they’re looking for is an undocumented worker and may be from a Central American country like Guatemala. The suspect is now wanted for Capital Murder.
