The body of a 56-year-old real estate agent who worked as a freelancer for a Star-Telegram publication was found Monday in the back yard of a Garland house, police reported.
Authorities are working to determine the circumstances of the death of Jacinto Torres Hernandez, who was found at a residence in the 4200 block of Mayflower Drive, Garland police spokesman Pedro Barineau said Tuesday.
He had been shot in the upper body, Barineau said.
Hernandez, whose byline was Jay Torres, was a frequent contributor to La Estrella, the Star-Telegram’s Spanish-language publication, for almost two decades. As a reporter and photographer, he covered many aspects of life in the Hispanic community in Dallas-Fort Worth.
