Ramiro Gonzalez Put to Death After Confessing to Abducting, Sexually Assaulting, and Fatally Shooting Teen in Medina County, Texas

Ramiro Gonzalez, a Texas man convicted of a heinous crime, faced execution on Wednesday night despite a last-minute twist in his case.

Back in 2001, Gonzalez admitted to the kidnapping, sexual assault, and fatal shooting of 18-year-old Bridget Townsend.

Her remains were discovered a year later in Southwest Texas, thanks to Gonzalez’s disclosure to authorities.

Apology and Final Moments

As the lethal injection took place at the State Penitentiary in Huntsville, Gonzalez addressed Townsend’s family with remorse.

“I can’t put into words the pain I have caused y’all, the hurt, what I took away that I cannot give back,” he expressed, seeking forgiveness.

“I hope this apology is enough,” he pleaded, reflecting on his actions and the irreversible consequences.

The Crime and Its Aftermath

Gonzalez’s conviction stemmed from the tragic events of January 2001.

After abducting Townsend from a residence in Bandera County, he transported her to his family’s ranch in Medina County.

There, he subjected her to sexual assault before fatally shooting her.

His actions were driven by a robbery gone horribly wrong, as he sought drugs and money.

In the end, despite legal proceedings and a psychiatrist’s evolving testimony, Gonzalez’s fate was sealed.

His execution marked a somber conclusion to a case that had haunted both the victim’s family and the broader community for years.
