Bill Hall, part owner of San Antonio trucking company – Bill Hall Jr. Trucking Ltd. (a 130 truck fleet) was forced off of the roadway and killed last Thursday evening. The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed that the suspect responsible for running him off the road was co-owner (since 1989) and wife (of nearly 32 years), Frances Hall.
This incident occurred near the southbound Loop 1604 close to Macdona-Lacoste road around 7:00PM – less than two miles from the trucking company headquarters.
Investigators have confirmed that Frances was behind the wheel of a Cadillac Escalade when she intentionally rammed Bill’s girlfriend’s Range Rover twice, and then turned on her husband – forcing his Harley off of the road.
He was airlifted to a nearby hospital and died 50 hours later.
An anonymous source who remains close to the investigation commented that the Halls were in the process of a divorce, and infidelity was known to be an issue between them. Bill’s cousin commented that there had been an altercation between Bill and Frances when he had gone to pick up the motorcycle.
Currently Frances has been placed under arrest for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon – but at this point it has been upgraded to first-degree murder.
She is currently free on $225,000 bond, but under full house arrest. Frances is only able to leave her home for court appearances, medical emergencies, or to meet with her attorney.
Bill Hall, Jr.’s rosary will be held at 7:00PM on Friday at the Porter Loring Funeral Home, and services will be held at 9:00AM Saturday.
Bill will be honored with a convoy including both trucks and motorcycles from the funeral home to Our Lady Queen of Heaven Parish.
