On Sunday morning at approximately 2:30am, Brady EMS and police were dispatched to the 1300 Block of South Bridge Street in reference to a Disturbance in Progress. Upon arrival, Douglas Wayne Morton (a 51-year-old resident of Brady) was located near his room and was found to have suffered several stab wounds to his upper torso.
Brady EMS transported Morton to the Heart of Texas Medical Center, where he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased by McCulloch County Judge Frank Trull.
An investigation into the disturbance was conducted, and Eric Daniel Flores (a 43-year old resident of Brady) was arrested at the scene and transported to the McCulloch County Jail, pending arraignment by a magistrate for the charge of Murder.
This is still considered an “open” investigation and will be looking for and pursuing any other investigative leads that develop.
Judge Trull did order an autopsy, which is scheduled to take place later today in Austin.
