    Is it just a coincidence that every July someone ends up on the RR Tracks in Paso? Three years ago, the tragic and unsolved death of Bryan Clifton Brady. Two years ago in July, a young man was drugged in alocal bar and woke up on the RR Tracks. Now, this year in July, a 60 year old man is killed on the RR Tracks. I am very sad for the victims families. I hope the local police do a thorough investigation.

    Uh, he was hit by a train because he obviously was too close to the tracks? Could this be the cause? Yep.

    There’re many signs posted to stay off of railroad property, and common sense tells you to especially not walk near or on the tracks. Many have been killed in this manner if they have hearing problems. Unfortunately, Darwin still lives.
