Ronald H. Jones lived in a tiny ramshackle warehouse on a woebegone backstreet near Hobby Airport. Sometime before 2 p.m. on Saturday April 17, that is also where the 67-year-old died -- and died violently, police believe.
Now an autopsy is pending to determine what caused the "undetermined wounds" on his body so that police can better conduct their investigation. At press time there is no known motive or suspects in the case.
Anyone with information about this case is urged to call the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
