Autopsy confirms ruling in Padron death

January 10, 2012

Preliminary autopsy results on a Big Spring man who died shortly after being found in a roadway last week confirm he was the victim of a hit and run accident, according to law enforcement officials.

Eleutario Torres Padron, 62, was discovered in the roadway by passerbys Thursday evening near the intersection of Sgt. Paredez and Trades Avenue on the city's north side, according to police reports.

Howard County Justice of the Peace Kathryn Wiseman said Monday preliminary autopsy results confirm Padron was struck by a vehicle before being left in the road.

County OKs jail expenditures

January 10, 2012

Howard County commissioners approved a number of routine items Monday, including a $1,300 expenditure at the county jail that will make it easier to house inmates, according to jail officials.

According to Jail Administrator Mike Dawson, the inability to isolate water sources in jail cells — specifically to showers and sinks — has made it tough to house a smaller number of inmates than designed for the areas.

However, some rather inexpensive valves and some plumbing know-how will fix that problem, Dawson told commissioners.
