Police identify man found murdered under bridge



The corpse found in San Marcos Friday was that of Frank Allen Urrutia, age 51, police announced today.

Urrutia’s cause of death was determined to be a homicide by blunt force trauma, said San Marcos PD Commander Penny Dunn.

A local game warden found Urrutia’s body Friday evening under the Blanco River bridge near IH-35, in a brushy area, according to city officials.

Urrutia’s white 2000 GMC single-cab truck, Texas license plate 57T-NH6, is missing and police consider the vehicle to be stolen.

Urrutia was last seen at Jack’s Roadhouse on Hunter Road in San Marcos at 1:30 a.m. on Sept. 14. Police are interested in speaking to anyone who may have seen him during or after that time.

Urrutia was disabled from a previous vehicle collision that resulted in some facial disfiguration and the amputation of his left arm.

Anyone with information is asked to call the San Marcos Police Department’s non-emergency number, (512) 753-2108, or the Criminal Investigation Division at (512) 753-2300.
