BRAZORIA COUNTY, Texas — Jubal Alexander was taking after his father working in chemical plants across Texas.
The father and son just had dinner together days before his son was murdered and decapitated in Angleton.
“They cut my son’s head off and they took my son’s head. Who would do that? I don’t understand,” his father told KTRK. “I couldn’t even see my son. They won’t even let me see him.”
Alexander was sleeping in his truck under a bridge in Angleton.
The 24-year-old was trying to save up money for bills working at a local chemical plant as a pipe fitter.
Friends and family say he was never trouble.
“He wanted me to be proud of him so we worked exceptionally hard,” his father said. “His shift was maybe a 10-hour maybe a 12-hour shift. He worked all night long.”
The family also says their son wasn’t robbed. They say Alexander’s wallet was found inside his truck with cash inside along with his guitar.
A fisherman who is also a Galveston, Texas, police officer found Alexander in his truck.
When asked what he wanted to say to the person who did this to his son, the father said, “I don’t want to say anything to the person. I want help to find the people who do this. I want enough coverage. I want people to know. I don’t want this to be swept under the rug or die in a cold case. I want people to know. ”
Police are asking the public to call in with tips to help solve the case.
Alexander’s head has not been found.
