Suspect Arrested In Death Of Denison Teen


Early in the morning of January 8, 2013, emergency personnel were called to a residence in the 300 block of W. Monterey in Denison in reference to a 15-year old male not breathing. Paramedics arrived to find the teenager unresponsive. The teenager was later pronounced deceased at 3:45 a.m. Police investigators were called to the scene as well and due to alleged trauma to the body, an investigation ensued as to the possible causes. Police secured a search warrant for the residence and conducted an extensive search. The body of the teenager was sent to Dallas for autopsy.

 Police learned that around the time of death, other persons in the house were an adult female, an adult male and a male juvenile sibling of the deceased. Police questioned the adults and the sibling was questioned by personnel at the Child Advocacy Center.

Just after noon on January 9, 2013, Denison police investigators were notified by the medical examiner that cause of death of the teenager was asphyxiation. Investigators forwarded the case findings to the Grayson County District Attorney's Office and secured an arrest warrant for ROBERT GRAY, JR., 51, of Denison for Murder, a 1st degree felony. Investigators located Gray in Denison about 3:50 p.m. on January 9 and took him into custody without incident. He was later transported to the Grayson County Jail under a $500,000 bond. If convicted, a 1st degree felony carries up to 99 years in prison and/or a fine up to $10,000.
