Doria Avila, a pioneer of fine dance in the Rio Grande Valley and a renowned instructor over three decades, was found dead Thursday at his home in central San Antonio.

Police are investigating the death and fire as a possible homicide and arson.

While a spokeswoman for the San Antonio Police Department would not confirm Avila’s identity, stunned friends and family confirmed Avila’s body was discovered when the San Antonio Fire Department responded to a 4 p.m. call from a neighbor reporting flames blazing out of control at his home on Parland Place near North New Braunfels Avenue.


The investigation into Avila’s death will continue today.

There is another article about the continuing investigation here.
It mentions a little more about his life.
