White Rock Creek: Wife of Jogger Killed in Texas Trail Takes Own Life

White Rock Creek: Wife of Jogger Killed in Texas Trail Takes Own Life

Dallas police say the wife of a slain White Rock jogger took her own life over the weekend.


Patti Stevens, 54, was found dead Sunday in her home in Sunnyvale. The medical examiner has not released her official cause of death, but Dallas County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Raul Reyna said it appears to be suicide.

Stevens’ husband, 53-year-old David Stevens, was randomly killed with a machete while jogging  along the White Rock Creek Trail on Oct. 12.

Former Skyline High School and Texas A&M football player Thomas Johnson was arrested for the deadly attack. He allegedly called 911 and confessed “I just committed capital murder.”

Following the arrest, Patti told the Dallas Morning News that “Dave was the love of my life and I’m lost without him.” The couple had no children.

Dave Stevens’ body went unidentified for nearly two days after the gruesome crime.

Johnson remains at the Dallas County jail on a $500,000 bail.
