Diboll Police Department Dedicated To Serving the Community

No further details have been released in this case. So far we do not even have the sex of the victim.

That said there is a family and a community that has lost a child and our heart goes out to them. Some comments on Facebook have assumed it was a male subject, though I haven't found that in the release.

Diboll is a small, tight-knit community and a tragedy of this scale is not a common thing. The Diboll Police Department reiterated its mission statement on its Facebook page.
