Alvarado woman, 26, killed in rollover wreck

Roof burglar’s bond set


An Alvarado woman involved in a car rollover died early Wednesday morning. Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office records identify the woman as Rachel Strange, 26. 

Briaroaks firefighters and CareFlite personnel responded at about 12:20 a.m. to the 3100 block of East Renfro Street near Burleson, according to DFWScanner.

Briaroaks Chief Brian Jamison said no other vehicles were involved and that Strange was the sole occupant of the car.

Strange died from blunt force trauma resulting from being ejected from her car, according to medical examiner records.

According to Facebook, Strange was a member of the local cover band, The Enablers, and worked at D’Vine Wine in Burleson. 


Roof burglar and friend

Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace Ronny McBroom on Tuesday magistrated and set bond on two men arrested for burglary in Cleburne on Monday morning.

Police located and arrested the suspects, David Shawn Long, 20, of Cleburne, and James Thomas Boyette, 26, homeless, on charges of burglary of a habitation shortly after responding to Wood Street on a possible burglary in progress call.

Boyette and Long allegedly fled once police arrived. One of the suspects climbed atop a roof in the 900 block of South Walnut Street and attempted to hide. Police spotted and arrested him and then the second suspect a short distance away.

Police recovered jewelry and other items allegedly stolen from the home. In addition to burglary, police charged Long with evading arrest and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon. McBroom set Long’s bonds at $22,000.

Police also charged Boyette with resisting arrest as well as parole and other warrants. McBroom set his bonds at $20,000 for the burglary and evading charges, but set no bond on the parole warrant charge.


Home delivery

Firefighters responded at 8:29 a.m. Monday to the 1300 block of Ridge Run Street to discover that a woman, 26, gave birth to a baby boy before they arrived. Rescue workers cut the umbilical cord and checked the child and mother. Although both appeared fine, they were transported to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Cleburne to be checked.
