On April 2, 2021, at approximately 8:15 a.m. Austin 9-1-1 received a call for an unresponsive male located at 12113 Dessau Road. Austin-Travis County EMS and APD officers responded to the residence. The subject was pronounced deceased at 8:30 a.m. by Dr. Escott and was identified as Jorge Jaimes.
Homicide investigators and crime scene personnel were called to the scene and began to investigate. During witness interviews, investigators learned that the previous night, Mr. Jaimes and friends were together at Club Chicas Bonitas, located at 3701 N IH 35 Svrd NB. A physical altercation began inside the club and Mr. Jaimes attempted to intervene and prevent the subjects from fighting. Mr. Jaimes was struck at least once, by a then unidentified male suspect.
