INFORMATION RELEASE (3)
TUESDAY, JULY 28, 2020
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
This afternoon, just after 3:20 pm, officers were out near Goose Island in Aransas County, looking for William Dysarz. Dysarz was determined to be the driver during the event that killed Borden, despite false statements he and his wife, Heather Dean, previously provided police.
After being observed leaving a relative’s home, investigators followed the vehicle the two were driving in. Dean was driving, and Dysarz was hunkered down in the passenger seat. Investigators stopped the vehicle as it was entering a nearby service station.
Dysarz was arrested on manslaughter charges. Dean was taken into custody after being found in possession of crystal meth. Dean was later released when the jail declined to accept her.
As a result of this investigation, detectives learned that Dean lied about driving the vehicle that struck and killed Borden. According to witnesses, additional evidence from their vehicle, and video surveillance, Dysarz was found to be the driver. Ensuing charges for filing a false statement or report to police and possession of a controlled substance are likely to follow for Dean.
This information release will serve as the final public notice in this case.
As with all rapidly evolving events, the information shared is subject to change or correction. When new information becomes available or a correction/update is needed, those updates will append to this original release.
