Bryant was taken to Brownfield Regional Hospital and then airlifted to UMC where he was pronounced dead. This beating turned murder is a shock to the community especially Bryant's family. His son, Frederick Bryant, was at work in New Mexico where he lives, when he got the news. He drove to Seagrave, on to Brownfield, and ultimately Lubbock where he got the news. He and the rest of his family hope that someone will come forward with information to lead investigators to the killer, and bring closure to this grieving family.
If you have any information, you are urged to call the Gaines County Sherrif's Dept. at (432) 758-9871.
