Victoria man found dead in yard identified

The body of a man found dead outside a Victoria home Saturday has been transported to the Travis County Medical Examiner for an autopsy.

Victoria Sheriff T. Michael O'Connor said deputies responded to an emergency call just after 4 p.m. Saturday to investigate a report that a man was found not breathing in the backyard of a home in the 100 block of Winding Way Drive West.

Charles V. Faupel, 38, of Victoria, was pronounced dead at 4:09 p.m. by Victoria Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace Ted G. Seel.

Faupel did not live at the home.

"There's no visible sign of foul play," O'Connor said. "The judge ordered an autopsy, so we'll wait until the preliminary results come back" to move forward.
