Torrez homicide: Autopsy perfomed on body of Abilene man

Eric Vincent Torrez, 41

TOM GREEN COUNTY, Texas - The Tom Green County Sheriff says the investigation into the death of Eric Torrez is ongoing and he'll be contacting the county district attorney to file additional charges on three people arrested in connection to his disappearance.

Deputies found the body of the 41-year-old Abilene man in Crockett County last Friday. Torrez went missing on July 21.

Sheriff David Jones said an autopsy was performed Monday on Torrez's body and that his office isn't prepared to release the cause of death yet.

Jones also said he believes the homicide happened in Tom Green County.

None of the three people arrested in the homicide case, including the mother of Torrez's two children, have been charged with murder.

Jones said he can't release what charges he plans to ask the DA to pursue on each of the suspects.

Progress is also being made in returning Torrez's body to his family, Jones said.
