Through interviews with close friends it is believed that on September 30, 1984, around 9:00 pm, Ronald HEARN and several friends were walking “hanging out” around the Sulfur Draw area along the Concho River near downtown San Angelo.  It is also believed that for some unknown reason Mr. HEARN became separated from his friends and during this time of separation a person or persons physically attacked Mr. HEARN.  At approximately 9:30 pm a friend of Mr. HEARN located his submerged deceased body in the Sulfur Draw.  Bexar County Medical Examiners concluded that Mr. HEARN’S death was the result of fresh water drowning.
