KILLEEN, TX — A Killeen mother is speaking up in search for answers after her son was murdered in Dallas.

Damon Hines, 39, is remembered by his friends and family as a kind and loving father and son.

He was killed Saturday after Dallas police responded to reports of a shooting. Hines was found dead at approximately 1:12 a.m.

“No parent should bury a child. But to actually make arrangements, I’m leaning a lot on my husband because this is just, you know, I spend a lot of time in denial. And I spend a lot of time angry. And then I’m sad and I wish I could do so much more for him,” said Susan Watson, Hines’ mother.

While the suspect remains at large, the family wants answers.

“If you know anything, we need to know. Or at least the police need to know. Because we would like to have justice for our son,” said Watson.

Originally from Killeen, Damon moved to Temple. His mother believes clues to Damon’s murder may have local ties.

“I got a phone call from him earlier in the week, and it seemed like a lot of the people he was hanging with in Temple had turned on him,” said Watson.

Police have no known suspects or reported leads.

Dallas Police Crime Stoppers are set to pay up to $5,000 for information called into Crime Stoppers that leads to the arrest and indictment for this felony offense.

If anyone has any information on the incident, call Crime Stoppers at (214)373-TIPS.
