(GALVESTON, TX) — A 60-year-old San Leon man was convicted Friday of involuntary manslaughter for the death of a woman he met in a League City night club 30 years ago.

The Galveston jury didn’t take long to convict Clyde Edwin Hedrick, who was connected back then to Elena Rae Beasom.

The Latest News Headlines, Traffic and Weather:

Hedrick was the person last seen with her on a steamy July night in 1984. But until modern technology revealed Beasom had been beaten to death, police couldn’t put a case together against him.

Hedrick will be sentenced for Beasom’s death when the jury comes back to a Galveston County courtroom on Monday.
