Police: 1 of the malnourished men allegedly held captive in Houston dies
(CNN) — One of three malnourished men found earlier this month in the garage of a Houston home has died, police said Tuesday.
He and the other men told police they’d been held captive before they were discovered July 19.
William Merle Greenawalt, 79, was pronounced dead six days later, Houston police said in a statement. The two other men who were allegedly held captive have been released from area hospitals.
Walter Renard Jones, 31 — the grandson of the home’s owner — has been charged with injury to the elderly by act and injury to the elderly by omission, according to Houston police spokeswoman Jodi Silva.
