News

BRADY, Texas (MAY 7)- At approximately 1:48 PM, the Brady Police Department was summoned to Brady Lake for the discovery of a deceased infant.

Police received a testimony from a local fisherman, who brought them to the location of the deceased child’s body:

“I was out fishing when I observed a partially submerged ammunition canister near the water’s edge. When I removed the can from the water, I noticed that it was heavy and decided to open it to see what was inside. However, I made the ghastly discovery of the child’s body and contacted law enforcement immediately.”

No information has been provided on the child’s identity, gender, or cause of death at this time. This is still an ongoing investigation and more information will be updated later.
