Black History Month: Tristan Rivera

In honor of Black History Month I’m profiling one African-American MP every day on this blog for the month of February. Today’s case is Tristan Markey Rivera, a 21-year-old man who disappeared from Irving, Texas on August 5, 2007. He is biracial (black/white) and mentally disabled.

He was last seen in the Trinity River floodwaters and is presumed drowned.

    Thank you a lot for posting about my uncle, we miss him very much. This is so recent and finally someone shined light onto this mysterious situation. My uncle wasn’t mentally disabled, I hate that they put this on his missing persons report. He was chased and they presumed that he “fell” into the water. My uncle was not dumb enough to do anything like that, especially over river water. We know he was murdered and know that all of it was a cover up. Thank you so much for this!!
