The latest news from around North Texas.
At the time of his death Tobolowsky was involved in a high-profile, emotionally charged civil case. While it's unclear if the case is related to Tobolowsky's death, the presiding judge, Eric Moye, recused himself after saying he was concerned for his personal safety.
The defendant in the civil case, Steven Aubrey, asked for more than $500,000 from Tobolowsky and wrote that: “Tobolowsky must be punished with sanctions for his outrageous abuse of the judicial system and his violation of statutes, codes and rules.”
Police previously said that Aubrey is not a suspect in the murder investigation.
