Missing Dallas County man found dead

The Dallas County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO) found an elderly Dallas County man deceased on Friday.

According to Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson, Thomas Houston, 84, was found dead at a Dallas County residence.

Houston had been missing since Christmas Day. Earlier this week, Dallas County Sheriff Mike Granthum confirmed that Houston was last seen at his home on the 1202 block of Harville Road in Selma. Granthum said the DCSO received a call from Houston’s neighbor.

Law enforcement officials do not suspect that foul play was involved with Houston’s death.

“It’s a very sad day in Dallas County,” Jackson said.

The case remains under investigation by the DCSO.
