Ronald Wayne White, a US Navy Veteran, was found dead in his apartment in Dallas on the 23rd of November 2019. Since leaving the Navy he worked as a defense contractor and travelled frequently outside of the US for business.
His mother, Doris Stevens, who lives in Long Island, New York said he frequently contacted her, until three years ago, when his calls stopped. She had also gone to several different police departments to file a missing person’s case and they all refused to open an investigation because he was an adult and he travelled a lot for work.
His apartment was paid from an account linked to a Navy retirement fund, so his rent was always paid. Detective Schulte said that there was no indication of foul play based on the way he was found, and the arrangement of the apartment.
The cause of death is still unknown, and tests are being run before the body is released to his family for the funeral.
