UPDATE: An Olney man is behind bars, charged with aggravated assault, and Young County authorities are investigating whether injuries he allegedly inflicted to his girlfriend led or contributed to her death.

Jesus “Jesse” Gonzales was arrested last night in Baylor County by Young Sherrif Bryan Walls and his chief deputy.

He is being held in the Young County jail while authorities wait on a 28-year-old woman’s autopsy report to determine if alleged punches to her face by Gonzales could have played a role in her death.

Olney Police Chief, Barry Roberts says Danae Adkins’ body was found Saturday morning by another woman who had let her stay in her apartment after she’d gotten in a fight with Gonzales Thursday night.

Because Gonzales has previously been in prison and was arrested on what’s called a “blue warrant” and he is being held without bond.

The Young County Sheriff’s Office and Texas Rangers hope to have Adkins’ preliminary autopsy results back by the end of the week.




Young County authorities are waiting on a 28-year-old woman’s autopsy report to determine if a punch she’d taken to the face could have played a role in her death.

And meanwhile, they are searching for the woman’s boyfriend.

Olney Police Chief, Barry Roberts says Danae Adkins’ body was found Saturday morning by another woman, who’d let Adkins stay in her apartment after the fight.

He says the fight with Adkins’ boyfriend happened Thursday night where they lived in the 500 block of South Avenue C in Olney.

Adkins reported the fight Friday morning.

Chief Roberts says Adkins had a black eye and bruises on an arm and leg.

And, at this point, he says “Jesse” Gonzales is a person of interest in Adkins’ death.

What’s called a state “blue warrant” is out for his arrest because Gonzales has been in prison and he’s not supposed to be involved in any kind of violence.

If you know of Gonzales’ whereabouts, you’re urged to call the law enforcement agency in your area.

The Olney Police Department and Young County Sheriff’s Office hope to have Adkins’ autopsy results back by the end of the week.
