The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office had not released a finding on the cause of death as of Saturday morning.
Camfield has been arrested at least eight other times since 2008 on charges that include public intoxication, traffic warrants, driving while intoxicated, and stealing or recieving stolen checks, according to Parker County Jail records.
During the most recent previous arrest on charges of public intoxication and resisting arrest in May, a Weatherford police officer responding to a suspicious person call determined that Camfield appeared to have “mental issues” and initially released him.
However, as Camfield was walking down Fort Worth Highway, the officer wrote that he observed Camfield urinate in public and contacted Camfield’s mother to pick him up. However, Camfield refused to go with her and began to flee police, before slipping and then struggling with officers, according to Weatherford police.
“[Camfield] violently and brutally took my baby’s life and just left him alone to die, then had the gall to steal his vehicle, phone, & other possessions without a second thought to the precious baby he left lying alone!!!!” Doss’ mother, Debora Mann, wrote on the Democrat’s Facebook page Friday.
Doss was an apprentice lineman, a member of North Side Baptist Church and loved fishing, woodworking and martial arts, according to his obituary.
In an online Facebook memorial page, several of Doss’ friends remembered him as a good friend who kept those around him laughing.
Camfield remains in Parker County Jail under $1 million bond.
