Suspicions of Theft, Chase Ends with One Dead
One person is dead after a chase that started in Little Elm and ended in Frisco early Wednesday morning. Frisco police said Roberto Ramirez of Little Elm was checking on his property when he saw two men in a Ford Explorer on the secure lot. Ramirez told police his property had been broken into the night before and he believed the men in the Explorer may have been stealing from him that is why he gave chase. Towards the end of the chase, the driver of the Explorer, 32-year-old Jonathon Rager, jumped out of the SUV. Ramierz's truck sideswiped the SUV and hit Rager as he was jumping. Rager was rushed to the hospital where he later died. The passenger inside the Explorer was not injured. The investigation continues and Frisco police said at this time no charges have been filed against Ramirez.
