ECTOR COUNTY, TX (KWES) -

New details have been released regarding an unattended death that occurred two weeks ago in Ector County.

As you may recall, Ector County deputies were called out to Ricks Cabaret on July 1 in reference to a disturbance call.

When deputies arrived on the scene, a subject, now identified as Richard Allen Hernandez, 29, was being transported to Medical Center Hospital where he later died.

After speaking with witnesses, deputies learned that a verbal disturbance between two Hispanic subjects occurred outside of the club and management asked everyone involved to leave.

According to the report, as one man was attempting to leave the parking lot the other man decided to approach the driver and stuck his arm inside the vehicle.

That’s when the driver tried to leave the parking lot again and the vehicle continued out of the parking lot with the subject on the side of his truck.

Deputies say a witness trying to follow the truck found Hernandez in the road with the truck nowhere to be found.

The suspect’s truck is described as a 2013-2014 Maroon Dodge Ram Pickup one ton with dual rear axles. We’re told the truck has gold striping down the side and over the fender welds and has a “lift kit” to raise the vehicle higher than normal.

Officials have released surveillance photos of one suspect as well as the suspect’s vehicle.

Authorities say there were two Hispanic males inside of the vehicle at the time of the incident.

No arrests have been made yet in connection with this case.

If you have any information, contact the Ector County Sheriff’s Office at (432) 335-3050.
