Little known in Buda homicide

Few details are known about the death of a Buda man that was ruled a homicide earlier this week.

An investigation is ongoing into the death of Brandon Lamont Fotnette, 36, of Buda, who was found in a residence in the 200 block of Brandon’s Way near Buda.

According to a press release, law enforcement was dispatched to the residence around 8:30 a.m. July 27 for a welfare concern. Authorities who responded to the residence found a deceased man, later identified as Fotnette, in the home.

Beth Smith, Hays County Pct. 2 Justice of the Peace, said she pronounced the man dead at 8:54 a.m. July 27. Smith said the residence was not Fotnette’s home and that he died of “unusual circumstances.”

However, Smith could not provide additional information as the investigation is ongoing.

According to the release, the Travis County Medical Examiner’s Office ruled the death a homicide. Officials said they do not believe there is a public safety concern and that it was an isolated incident.
