Investigators Charge Evading Suspect with Kidnapping after Lengthy Investigation Unfolds
Oct 23, 2020   05:23 PM

On Thursday, October 22, 2020, San Angelo Police began investigating the kidnapping of a 30-year-old San Angelo woman where the suspect, who was an acquaintance of the victim, reportedly held the woman captive and physically and sexually assaulted her at a residence located in the 600 block of East Harris Avenue before stealing her vehicle. 

Hours later, a San Angelo Police Officer discovered the stolen vehicle in the 2400 block of Jomar.  The suspect driver, identified as 40-year-old Lionel Munoz, fled the officers and a brief vehicle and foot pursuit ensued.  Muniz was eventually taken into custody without further incident and then treated at a nearby hospital for dog bite-related injuries he sustained while attempting to hide from officers in a stranger’s backyard. 

During the subsequent field investigation, Detectives with the Department’s Criminal Investigations Division obtained a Search Warrant for the Harris Avenue residence.  During the search, officers located a significant amount of evidence, which corroborated the victim’s allegations.  

Munoz has been charged with Aggravated Kidnapping – Bodily Injury/Sexual Abuse and Evading Arrest Detention with Vehicle.  Bond has been set for $157,500.00 

Additional charges are forthcoming pending the outcome of this ongoing investigation.

Murder Suspect Apprehended after Multi-Jurisdiction Manhunt
Oct 20, 2020   11:34 AM

October 20, 2020 — The suspect wanted in connection with the murder of 23-year-old Selena Ann Bradley has been apprehended. 

39-year-old William James Hernandez (AKA Martinez) was taken into custody this morning by officials from the Hamlin Police Department.   

Hernandez was named a person of interest early on in a Missing Person Investigation that was led by the Tom Green County Sheriff’s Office.  Through investigation, deputies believed Hernandez was involved in Bradley’s disappearance and that Bradley may have been at a business or residence that was associated with Hernandez.    

On Monday, October 19, 2020, officials with the Tom Green County Sheriff’s Office requested assistance from the San Angelo Police Department with the execution of two search warrants for a commercial building located in the 1100 block of South Chadbourne Street as well as a residence located in the 100 block of Allen Street.  During the search of the residence on Allen, investigators discovered Bradley deceased.  The cause and manner of death are pending an autopsy.  

Pursuant to the field investigation, detectives obtained information that led them to believe Hernandez could be in Abilene, Texas.  In a coordinated effort with the Abilene Police Department, Hernandez was located near a carwash in but he avoided apprehension after he purposefully collided with the apprehension team’s vehicle.  The vehicle Hernandez was operating was later discovered in Jones County, unoccupied and disabled in a field.  After a multi-agency search that included the aforementioned agencies and Texas Game Wardens, Hernandez successfully eluded officials until he was discovered walking by an officer with the Hamlin Police Department.  

Hernandez has been charged with Murder.  This investigation is ongoing and additional details will be released when they become available.
