Local News

WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — Outside of the Wichita Falls Police Department station stood Bubba McDaniel along with a group of protestors carrying signs calling for justice for Wilder.

McDaniel continues to urge Wichita Falls Police Department to make arrests in connection to the death of his 2-year-old son, and Friday night he and about a dozen other people gathered demanding justice.

Wichita Falls police officers found the body of Wilder McDaniel, 2, at a Wichita Falls home on Oct. 11, 2018.

McDaniel’s message of frustration Friday night was directed to Chief Manuel Borrego and the entire police department.

“My son is never going to go away from you,” McDaniel said. “You’re going to have to do something. I want Borrego to name suspects. I want him to come out and actually name the charges, name what’s going on, say something about my son. Don’t just [leave] everyone in the dark.”

McDaniel and Wilder’s mother, Amber, said they will hold more protests in the future.
