Racer's Grandfather Was Beaten To Death

Posted: Updated:


We're learning more about the tragic death of a local racing star.

Donnie Ray Crawford III was shot and killed by his grandfather Daniel Garcia Saturday morning.

Crawford's parents were both injured in a scuffle following the shooting.

Garcia was killed.

It was previously thought that he might have been shot in the struggle.

But Wagoner County Sheriff Bob Colbert confirms to ktul.com, Garcia did not die from a gunshot wound.

He died from blunt force trauma sustained during a fight with Crawford's father, Donnie Ray Crawford II.

The sheriff says, injuries to the elder Crawford's hands were sustained during that fight, which suggests Garcia was beaten to death.

Sheriff Colbert says, it appears to be a case of self-defense by Crawford II.

A final report will be handed over to the District Attorney next week.

Funeral services for Crawford III are at 2pm Saturday January 21 at Rhema Bible Church.
