The Killeen Police Department responded to a rural area in west Bell County on Tuesday morning in order to assist the Temple Police Department with the discovery of a deceased man.
Support and investigative assistance was provided by the Killeen Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Division and by deputies with the Bell County Sheriff’s Department Patrol Division.
Killeen Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke was notified and responded to the scene, where he ordered the body transported to the Southwestern Institute of Forensic Science (SWIFS) in Dallas for autopsy and positive identification.
On Wednesday, July 18, SWIFS identified the deceased as 21-year-old Hasson Lindsey, Jr. of Killeen, who had recently been reported missing. His death was ruled a homicide.
Temple Detectives presented the case to the Bell County District Attorney’s Office on Wednesday afternoon. The case was accepted and a complaint was issued charging 26-year-old Oklahoma resident Raymond McKinnon with the murder of Hasson Lindsey, Jr. This complaint was reviewed by Justice of the Peace David Barfield, who issued a warrant for McKinnon’s arrest and set bond at $1 million. This is an active and ongoing investigation.
Any further requests for information surrounding this incident can be directed to the Temple Police Department.
