Ramon Jaramillo Vasquez went missing at the age of 28 after he went to a nearby store near his home on Rayo Street with his brother-in-law, Juan Suarez, and never returned...

According to Jim Wells County Sheriff's Department reports, Suarez was admitted to a local hospital later that night with a gunshot wound to his chest, which he told deputies he accidentally inflicted on himself. Suarez later changed his story and said Vasquez shot him, and he then struck Vasquez in the head or neck and left him on the side of a road, reports stated.

Vasquez was never seen again and no one was charged in his disappearance.

In one report, it mentioned Suarez took a polygraph examination along with other family members. But Suarez's chart contained a deceptive reaction in two questions: Do you know where Ramon is now? And Did you leave Ramon Vasquez on Amagosa Road? The results of the test were considered inconclusive, the report said.

The report also mentioned a bizarre twist in which one of the deputies involved in the investigation had told the current chief of police he knew the suspect was involved. “He knew that (the suspect) had killed Ramon Vasquez and put him in a 55-gallon drum and was to have buried him in Duval County...”

The report also says the deputy and the suspect were good friends.
Vasquez is described as a Hispanic male, 5'9" and 170 pounds, with brown hair, brown eyes and a scar on his chin. He has a tattoo of a rose on his left bicep with a ribbon below the rose with the names "Gracie," "Sandra" and "Ramon." Last seen wearing a denim vest, blue jeans, and brown leather sandals.
