Two bodies found are identified

3-17-2004 Texas:

Atascosa County authorities have identified the burned body of a man who was found this weekend along a local highway as 31-year-old Ronald Henry Enriquez of San Antonio.

A motorist spotted Enriquez's body on fire Saturday night in a ditch near the intersection of FM 1784 and FM 536 in northeastern Atascosa County.

David Soward, chief deputy for the Atascosa County Sheriff's Department, said Enriquez, a known Mexican Mafia member and registered sex offender, was shot in the head before being doused with a flammable liquid. Soward said investigators believe Enriquez's body was set on fire at the site where he was found.

No arrests have been made and authorities continue to investigate the shooting death.

Enriquez's body was one of two dumped along highways in the San Antonio area since Saturday.

Another man found dead in a brushy field off Cassin Road on Monday was identified today as 30-year-old Robert Gleason, of the 100 block of North San Horacio Avenue.

Gleason died of gunshot wounds to the head and chest, according to a Bexar County medical examiner's investigator. Gleason's death was ruled a homicide.

No arrests have been made in connection with his death.

Authorities have not linked the two deaths. ..more.. by Jeorge Zarazua, San Antonio Express News


See Court Decision: Frank Trinidad -v- State of Texas

Testimony Presented
The State called several witnesses to testify at trial regarding the murder allegations against Trinidad, several of which were present during or shortly after the incident in question. Christopher Anthony Vasquez (“Tony”),1 a dealer for Trinidad, was outside the residence when Enriquez arrived. Tony explained that he “waited for [Enriquez] to show up and when I was giving [the cocaine] to him he was already mad and said he didn’t want to talk to me because I was a nobody and he punched me in the face and I fell to the ground.” Tony continued that Enriquez then threw Christopher Vasquez (“Chris”), Tony’s twin brother, off the porch steps and headed inside the residence. According to Tony, Jorge Zapata came from beside the refrigerator and shot Enriquez, who was unarmed, in the back of the head and, while Enriquez “was lying face down on the ground . . . Frank shot him in the back of the head.” Tony further told the jury that Zapata, Trinidad and Chris wrapped Enriquez’s head in plastic, put him in the back of the car and before driving off, instructed Tony to clean up the mess at the house.
