Reward increased in murder of San Antonio gay man
QSanAntonio.com, July 1, 2014

An anonymous donor has helped increase the reward to anyone who can provide information regarding the murder of a gay man who in 2012 was found dead in in his home in the 2700 block of Wilborn on San Antonio's Northeast Side.

Neighbors of Roland "Danny" Castillo said they became worried when they could not reach him by phone on June 28, 2012.

According to local media reports, a friend of Castillo's found the door to the home unlocked and went in to find the victim dead in the shower with the water running. Police said there was blood on the bathroom door and on the floor. It appears Castillo was stabbed to death.

Crime Stoppers will pay $5000 and an additional $5000 is being offered by friends of Castillo. An anonymous donor this week added another $5000, amounting to a total reward of $15,000, for information which leads to the arrest of whoever was responsible for the victim's murder.

Castillo, who was 67-years-old, was a native of Seguin. According to his obituary, Castillo was a nurse at the Audie Murphy VA Hospital and a member of St. Anthony de Padua Catholic Church. He went to nursing school in Dallas, served in the U.S. Air Force and taught nursing in Beirut, Lebanon.

Castillo was active in the ACTS HIV Ministry which offers three-day retreats to people affected by HIV. The ACTS HIV Ministry also provides on-going prayer groups, special liturgies, and social activities to continue to provide friendship and fellowship to those affected or infected with HIV.
