Update 5:42 p.m. | At approximately 1:09 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 29, the Guadalupe Sheriff County’s Office responded to an incident in the 600 Block of Dupuy Ranch, and arrived at the scene to find 20-year-old Texas State student Jordin Taylor deceased under a bus after she was dragged 500 feet.
According to Sheriff Arnold S. Zwicke, the investigation revealed that there was a fraternity party the night before at the Cool River Ranch. One of the busses lost its air breaking system at about 11:15 p.m. that night, and the bus driver was transferred to another bus. A mechanic discovered the female’s body by the rear axel when he came to repair the bus that next day.
Police are still investigating the incident and are asking those who attended the event with the victim to share any information by calling 830-379-1224.
Texas State spokesperson Matt Flores confirmed that the death of the San Marcos man who died at the Metropolitan Apartments on Craddock was not a Texas State student. Further investigation for this incident is ongoing.
