A Man Accused Of Tragically Running Down Michael Alexander Hill, Fleeing Scene, Employed Again As A Bartender!
HOUSTON — FEB 18 — A popular business that launched multiple highly successful café’s from Montrose has hired a man accused of tragically running down and killing a gay man that lead Houston Police on a year long, nationwide manhunt.
Suspect, Emmanuel Salgado, is employed with BB’s Café in the Heights as a bartender while on bond for felony ‘failure to stop and render aid – accident involving death’.
The death of Hill drew national attention after Houston Police charged the wrong man in the case. It was later discovered that Salgado was employed at Boheme Bar as a bartender just a few block away from where Hill was killed.
“I can confirm he is a bartender at our Heights café,” a manager at the Montrose location confirmed with About News. “We were not aware of the charges, and I will be making some calls,” he stated. Management at BB’s in the Heights would not speak to us, and calls to owner Brooks Bassler last week were not returned.
Salgado is charged in the 182nd district court of Harris County and free on a $30,000 dollar bond awaiting his next court appearance.
“There is irrefutable proof in the case via blood evidence found on [Salgado] the vehicle from my son,” Michael Hill Sr, the father of Hill, confirmed to About News.
Houston Police have long suspected the accused was intoxicated when Hill was killed.
