Cold Justice: Season 1: Episode 8 “Blind Love”

Cold Justice: Season 1: Episode 8 – Aired: October 22, 2013

The 2008 death of Rocky Bryant in Seagraves, Texas, is investigated. On March 25, 2008, approximately 30 minutes after clocking in to work at a local feed plant, Rocky was found brutally beaten in a building where he worked within walking distance of his house. He was pronounced dead at the hospital a few hours later.

As the investigators dug into his wife Patricia Graves’ background, it was evident that she was having an extra-marital affair and had reason to want to be free of her husband. Her boyfriend, Luis Villarreal, was a very viable suspect as Rocky’s killer. He was known to have a temper and a history of being highly possessive of women he was seeing.

Probable cause arose to indict Patricia as a party to the murder, by revealing Rocky’s work schedule to her former boyfriend and suspect, Luis.

In mid-February 2014, Patricia Graves accepted a plea deal for the murder of Rocky. As of April 2014, Luis is in jail awaiting trial still.
