From our Bad Rumor-Squashing Department . . .
I was asked today by a concerned attorney whether or not beloved former prosecutor (and Brazos County) David Hilburn had passed away. Since Dave is a really good friend of mine, I was pretty sure I would have heard that news, but I texted him to be sure.
Dave was happy to report that he is still alive and well, but acknowledged that this was the second time this week that someone had texted him to ask if he was dead.
Apparently, another David Hilburn passed away recently and that David was a friend of a friend on Facebook, who had subsequently posted "RIP David Hilburn," and that's where the confusion began.
So, rest easy friends, Dancing Dave is still not dead.
