Sheriff’s office looking for suspect in fatal stabbing east of Kyle


UPDATED 8:19 p.m. MONDAY, SEPT. 29: Hays County Sheriff’s office deputies are looking for the last person seen with a man whose lifeless body was found Monday alongside a residential street east of Kyle.

The apparent homicide victim, who was found with “multiple stab wounds,” was found today near Red Bird Trail and Dove Lane in the Dove Hills subdivision off Windy Hill Road east of the Kyle city limits, said Hays County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Phillip Taylor, a spokesperson for the agency. Authorities this afternoon declined to release the dead man’s name or age because his family had not yet been notified, Taylor said.
