We're now learning more about the victim of a deadly attack at a Seagraves business Tuesday.
Since we first told you on NewsChannel 11 at 10, the Lubbock County Medical Examiner's Office conducted an autopsy on Robert Glenn Bryant. The 54-year-old was known by most in Seagraves as "Rocky."
Authorities say a co-worker found Bryant on the floor of this fertilizer warehouse at Agriliance just after 7:30 Tuesday morning. Agriliance is a farm chemical and fertilizer center located just outside the Seagraves city limits.
Seminole police dogs were called to the scene to assist the Gaines County Sheriff's Office. The Seagraves Police Department and Texas Rangers are also assisting in this homicide investigation. NewsChannel 11 has learned authorities believe the suspect knew Bryant.
Bryant's fiancée Patricia Grayes says he was alive when she arrived.
"I saw my baby laying on the floor bleeding - just laying their screaming," said Grayes.
According to authorities, Bryant told emergency personnel that he'd been beaten up. Seagraves EMS rushed Bryant to Brownfield Regional Hospital. He was then air-lifted to UMC in Lubbock where he later died.
If you know anything about Bryant's death you're urged to call the Gaines County Crime Line at (432) 758-4025.
