Puente ‘was likely dead several hours’ before he was found

Francisco Javier Puente Jr., 35, was found dead in his apartment Monday afternoon. He had several stab wounds, according to Uvalde Police.

Uvalde Police were dispatched to 602 W. Cargile St., Apt. 2, after Puente’s girlfriend called 911.

“She hadn’t been able to get a hold of him so she went to his apartment. The door was unlocked and when she opened it she sees all this blood in the living room,” said Lt. Mariano Pargas. “She didn’t go inside. She called 911.”
