DALLAS–Linton Daniel Wilgus, 44, of Henderson County, died Monday morning at a Dallas church after claiming to having been stabbed.
Wilgus reportedly drove to Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship asking for help but later became combative and lunged at church members.
Church members called for help around 6 a.m. but Wilgus died before Dallas Police and Fire-Rescue arrived. Police said Wilgus had puncture wounds to his neck.
Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship Senior Pastor Dr. Tony Evans says Wilgus was not a member of the church.
Records show Wilgus has ties to the Murchison area and arrest records in Cherokee, Henderson, Smith and Ward counties.
Police towed an older-model Ford Mustang, belonging to another Henderson County resident, from the scene.
The Dallas County Medical Examiner’s Office are investigating the cause of death.
