“Yes, an arrest has been made,” Michael Hill Sr, the father of Hill confirmed exclusively to About News via text message this morning. “There is irrefutable proof in the case via blood evidence found on [Salgado] the vehicle from my son.”

“He touched the life of every person he met,” said one of Hill’s close friends Casey Ray. “I was shocked when the suspect was identified,” Ray says of Salgado as the individual responsible for his friend’s death. “I have actually bought drinks from him before, it’s hard to process.”

Death Of LGBT Man Sparks Texas Rangers Investigation

The death of a 23-year old man in Hardin County, Texas has caused Texas Rangers to launch official investigation.

The Texas Rangers have officially launched an investigation into the ‘in custody’ death of Cody Lane Livingston, 23, while in custody of the Hardin County Sheriff’s Department on Saturday.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, on Saturday, August 27, 2016 at approximately 6:00a.m. DPS was notified of a possible crash near Sour Lake. (Sour Lake is about 1 hour north-east of Houston.)

DPS explains that it determined there was no crash, but suspected Livingston was driving while intoxicated. DPS explains a field sobriety test was conducted but failed to release results. Instead, Livingston was booked into the jail for an outstanding warrant.

Hardin County Sheriff Ed Cain explains that ‘Livingston was booked into the Hardin County Jail at 7:30 a.m. and had no outward signs of injury as he was booked.’

DPS states ‘Livingston was found unresponsive in a jail cell’ and transported to St. Elizabeth’s hospital in Beaumont, Texas, where he was pronounced dead.

“I couldn’t believe it,” said Tanner Moore, Livingston’s boyfriend. “It was hard to believe, because he was just here with me the other day helping me move.” He said the two saw each other Friday night at Moore’s residence in the Lufkin area.

According to Moore, on Saturday “I tried to call him, probably called him 3 to 5 times. He didn’t answer, and he said ‘I’m at a bar in Houston.”

Friends have set up a GoFund Me Page to help the family with expenses.
