Deleon death not dismissed by Grand Jury

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Lubbock family was deeply hurt to hear that a grand jury declined to charge anyone for the death of Juan Deleon. But it's not true.  

Despite reports to the contrary, District Attorney Matt Powell tells NewsChannel 11 that autopsy results are not ready and the case has never been presented to a grand jury. Back in late May police responded to a fight in the 1900 block of 22nd street.   Deleon was taken University Medical Center where he died a few days later. His family is still grieving.

Deleon's sister, Angelica Gutierrez says, "His nephews and nieces, my mom, we're all suffering. It's a horrible day. Someone needs to pay for this. All the ones that were there that night need to pay for this."

The case has not yet been scheduled for a grand jury docket and Powell says he's not sure when that will happen. It could be weeks from now, he says.
