The sheriff said there were obvious signs of trauma on the victim’s body and that the slaying was not a random act of violence.

The victim, who lived by himself, was more than likely killed overnight, Salazar said.

Anyone who may have information on the crime is asked to call the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office at 210-335-6070.
