Man dies after being restrained by Texas deputy, her husband

Authorities say three hikers stranded in a mountainous area of northwestern New Mexico have been located but that one is dead following what was earlier reported as a medical emergency. A confrontation between the deputy's husband and Hernandez ensued that resulted in Hernandez losing his life in the hospital three days later, authorities said. That fight is believed to have led to the death of Hernandez.

John Hernandez died following an incident at a Denny's restaurant on May 28. The ruling appears to be, in the opinion of an attorney for Hernandez's family, "manslaughter if not a murder. because it appears the guy has him in a chokehold and he chokes [Hernandez], and he chokes him and eventually kills him". The attorney for Hernandez's widow says this move is not allowed by some police agencies. Eyewitness video released to another attorney showed a close view of the confrontation, with Thompson on top of Hernandez.

"Even after I told him "stop, stop" and other people were screaming he wouldn't do it", the eyewitness said.

Some say this video proves that someone should be charged with the death of Hernandez. "Now!" the protesters went through downtown, stopping directly outside of Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg's office to hold a sit-in, then ending the march at the Harris County sheriff's office. The faces have been blurred out since no charges have been filed at his time. Hernandez was drunk and defenseless as he was beaten.

Hundreds of protesters rallied outside the Harris County Criminal Justice Center Wednesday, June 7, to demand justice for the death of John Hernandez.Hundreds of protesters rallied outside the Harris County Criminal Justice Center Wednesday, June 7, to demand justice for the death of John Hernandez.

"John's three-year-old daughter witnessed the killing and begged the killer to stop hitting her daddy", the girl's mother, Maria Toral, said. "He was really angry". "He was kicking his legs in a helpless fashion, and you can hear him gargling or gurling, 'Stop, stop'".




"She was crying and telling".

Johnny Hernandez, 24, was taken off life support on May 31, 2017.

Scot Courtney, an attorney for the Thompsons, said Hernandez was the aggressor. The husband of the off-duty sheriff's deputy looks like he weighs at least 300 pounds. "I trust their skill set on this and I have experience investigating these types of cases, and so I have full confidence that we at the sheriff's office are highly capable to present an independent investigation and do it thoroughly", Gonzales said.

"First time I saw the video over the weekend I was pretty shocked", Carroll said Monday. Following the incident, the off-duty deputy was pulled from patrol duty.

Sheriff Ed Gonzalez has asked the Texas Rangers and the Department of Justice to assist with the case, to avoid the perception his department is biased since one of its deputies was involved in the incident. "I think if it were the other way around, the guy would be arrested right there", Garcia added.
