Bexar County Sheriff's Office spokesman Ian Badillo said Tuesday that John B. Strait Jr. was found by a hotel maid crew Friday afternoon. He was 58.
Badillo said Strait appeared to die of natural causes. An autopsy is expected to take several weeks.
Five days before his brother died, George Strait was saluted by the Academy of Country Music Awards as their Artist of the Decade.
Strait and his brother grew up in Pearsall, about an hour south of San Antonio.
