September 20, 2009 at approximately 6:15p.m. Boyd Police responded to a welfare concern at 457 W. Rock Island, Trinity Baptist Church parsonage. The caller notified Wise County Communications Officers that they were attempting to get in touch with Pastor Robert Worley and his wife Jerry, after they did not show up for evening church service. The caller reported that they had knocked on all the doors, and that they could hear something running inside the garage, possibly a vehicle. Boyd Police Officer Vince Estel was able to make entry with a key to the residence. Estel immediately smelled the odor of vehicle exhaust and discovered a female in the living room area. With assistance from Boyd Fire Department searching the residence, a male victim was located in a back bedroom. CPR was administered to both the male and the female victims at the scene, and were subsequently transported to Wise Regional Hospital in Decatur, by Wise County EMS. The male victim identified as Pastor Robert Worley was pronounced dead at the hospital. Worley’s wife, Jerry, was flown by LifeStar Air Ambulance to Harris Methodist Hospital in Ft. Worth. Although there were no signs of foul play, the investigation continues as a questionable death. Assisting in the investigation with Boyd Police, are the Texas Rangers, and the Wise County Sheriff’s Office. Edit: Channel 11 has a little bit more info, but not much.
