Brixlee Marie Lee, the two-month-old infant who was recently placed on life support after being found unconscious and testing positive for heroin has succumbed to her injuries.
Lee was rushed to Shannon Medical Center in the early morning hours of Saturday, November 7, 2020 after officers located her unconscious at a residence located in the 2200 block of Webster Avenue. Due to Lee’s declining state and the location of the responding ambulance, officers transported Lee via patrol vehicle while another officer administered CPR. The attending physician later advised that Lee was in cardio-respiratory failure and that, had the medical intervention not occurred when it did, Lee would have died. Staff also advised the officers that Lee had injection sites on her extremities and head and that she tested positive for heroin.
Lee was transported later that day to Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth, where she remained on life-support until physicians pronounced her death on Tuesday, November 10, 2020.
Lee’s mother, 21-year-old Destiney Harbour, Lee’s maternal grandmother, 37-year-old Christin Chanelle Bradley, and Bradley's boyfriend, 34-year-old Dustin Wayne Smock, have been charged with First Degree Felony Injury to Child – Serious Bodily Injury.
Harbour is being held on $100,000.00 bond. Smock is being held on $50,000.00 bond. Bradley was released on November 8, 2020, after posting bond.
Lee’s body was sent for autopsy. The results are pending.

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.

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.

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.
