Kyle PD Identifies Body Found on Kyle Crossing

Kyle Police have released the name of the man found dead on Kyle Crossing early last week.

John Raymond Distasio, 55, was found on July 2 by a person who was walking to work. At the time, police did not find any identification so officers weren’t immediately aware of the man’s name or age.

Hays County Pct. 2 Justice of the Peace Beth Smith has since ordered an autopsy of his body and fingerprints were used to confirm his identification.

It is believed that Distasio was a transient from New Mexico.

Preliminary reports indicate illegal drug use was involved in Distasio’s death.  Police do not suspect foul play.
