Ganado man charged with not calling 911 for injured party guest
A Ganado man has been charged with not calling an ambulance for an injured party goer at his house,
The man was found dead in the yard the next day.
A Jackson County grand jury indicted E.J. Falcon, a 52-year-old Ganado man, on a charge of with injury to a disabled individual on May 31, District Clerk Sharon Mathis said.
Falcon owned a home in the 200 block of Farm-to-Market Road 1683, where Freddie Anzaldua, was found dead on Feb. 2.
The night before, Falcon hosted a barbecue, and guests were coming and going from his property, his attorney Richard Manske said.
"He (Falcon) didn't have any knowledge that (Anzaldua) was dying or injured," Manske said.
In the eyes of state law, Anzaldua became disabled after he was injured, the attorney said.
Anzaldua's injuries were caused by blunt force, Jackson County Sheriff A.J. Louderback said earlier in the investigation.
Injury to a disabled person in this case is a first degree felony, Manske said.
Falcon's next court appearance is set for July 18, Mathis said.
