Prayers going out for Braxton and his family.

I believe this is an old facebook of his http://www.facebook.com/braxton.blue?ref=ts&fref=ts

Here's his brothers profile who is not a minor so I believe I can post it... if not mods please remove. It can be found from his old facebook profile under brother.. http://www.facebook.com/micheal.blue.56

It also looks like Braxton's brother got married on 2/6/13 per his sister inlaws FB but 12/22/12 per his brothers FB. IMO since he had been posting about a girl maybe he was depressed that his brother was getting married and is just hiding out?

Braxton's mom is now offering a $2000 reward to anyone who bring Braxton to them or them to Braxton. Praying for this guy, it's too bad about the lack of MSM attention.

Oh gosh I hope Brax is okay and they find him real soon. Prayers to him and his mom.

There are some rumors on his fb page that seem to point to who knows something.

Thanks for the heads up, Phoenix. That was one heckuva comment list. I hope this boy does the right thing and comes home.

Thanks again!

Can't find anything new in MSM...... Praying he's found soon.

Did some searching on his FB and it looks like Mom says he was with a girl and her baby when he first went missing. He has since purchased a track phone with a number they don't know and has been seen at a party. The person Mom had a conversation with says the girl is caught up in drugs which seems to worry Mom.

She says she has gone to the police in the town without getting any help and hasn't had any help tracking his bank card.

I feel terrible for this Mom and she seems to spend a lot of time on his FB looking for him. Braxton if your out there go home, you parents have said there is nothing that you could have done that couldn't be fixed!

The reward is still being offered and you can find Braxton's moms number on Facebook.

If you google "Braxton Blue Dumas Tx" you should locate a warrant that was issued for Braxton on 2/7. I'm curious as to if cause for this was before or after he went missing.

I hope that Braxton isn't hiding because of this warrant and if so I hope he knows this won't solve anything.

That's all the new info I've found for now.

I found the missing poster that lists the woman's name he is believed to be in company with. This can be located on fb with the amber alert poster. I am confused as to why he is not listed on Doe network, Namus or National Missing and Exploited Children.

Thanks for all the info jn0920! What the heck is "violation of promise"? TIA

ETA: Apparently its a written promise when charged with traffic violations to attend court, or pay a fine.

I hope he is safe, and contacts his family soon!!!! Like yesterday!

03-20-2013, 12:41 AM
I believe they may be referring to something like probation, promise to appear in court or a similar agreement to allow him to live outside of a juvenile detention center. I could be wrong but in my experience its been one of those two.

at least if he is in considered in violation of some legal matter, LE might be more apt to pay attention, which in turn at least his family would know that he is safe.

03-23-2013, 06:35 PM
Still no word on this young man!

04-23-2013, 02:04 AM
Braxton's mom verified via FB this evening that he is still missing. I can't begin to imagine how frustrated she is feeling but IMO from what I understand he is choosing to remain missing. Unfortunately she also said that she had received very disturbing new this evening.

I hope Braxton remembers his mothers unconditional love and I'm saying a few prayers tonight, will add Braxton and his family to them.

It has got to be frustrating for the family to say the least, the town he lives in is very very small. I wonder if he has left town (think closest big town would be Lubbock). Prayers for him and his family.

04-23-2013, 12:45 PM
prayers for braxton and his poor mama. my heart breaks for her.

07-02-2013, 12:18 AM
It saddens me to post that Braxton was located deceased on May 20th. My prayers go out to his family, friends and community during this difficult time, he was far too young.

Can a mod please bump this topic to located. TIA.

Braxton Blue, a 2012 graduate and member of Tri-State & Region 1 has been missing for several months. It is unconfirmed at this time, but the body found near Dalhart on Monday is believed to be Braxton. Please keep his family in your prayers. It has been a very difficult time for them not knowing where Braxton has been the last four months and now they have the uncertainty of the whether he has really been found. Their pain is unimaginable.

07-20-2013, 03:42 PM
This really confuses me.. I thought he has just ran away? What on earth happened? :(

RIP Braxton.

Possible homicide investigation in Hartley County


I assume this is him - can't find anything else though.

His brother's FB posts certainly suggests it was Braxton but there doesn't seem to be any official confirmation either to ID or COD that I could find? Rest in peace, Braxton and if justice is needed. may it be swift.

There was an announcement made on the Prayers page for their town on FB. I will see if I can find it again.

Braxton J. Blue

"Braxton J. Blue, died May 18, 2013. Services will be at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 6, at Temple Baptist Church with J. McGaughy officiating. Burial will be at Dumas Cemetery. Arrangements are by Boxwell Brothers Funeral Director of Dumas."

More of the obituary at the link above.

The DNA test results came back in late last week, a tragic confirmation about Braxton Blue's whereabouts and a sad closure to a case many believed went on far too long.

08-02-2013, 02:37 AM
I hope you're resting in peace, Braxton. Such a sad end to a young life. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

08-02-2013, 04:36 PM
was it a homicide?

08-02-2013, 04:54 PM
was it a homicide?

from the above link:
Preliminary reports indicate his death was caused by a self-inflicted gunshot wound, but an official cause of death isn't to be determined until a judge sees the final autopsy report. Regardless, Hartley County officials say the Texas Rangers are no longer involved in the investigation.

Note: Preliminary.

So sad... to be in that kind of pain at that age...

Braxton just came to my mind and I remembered that the last thing I had read in this thread was that he had been located deceased. A few seconds later I found that he was in so much pain that he took his own life. Thinking of his loved ones.

I hope you're free now, Braxton.
