Police Officer Keith Stowe succumbed to injuries sustained 14 years earlier when he was assaulted and severely beaten over the back and abdomen with a 2x4 and a piece of re-bar.

The assault took place when Officer Stowe, along with four other officers, responded to a domestic disturbance in the area of the 1500 block of West Webster Street.

Following the incident, Officer Stowe underwent several surgeries, including the removal of his spleen. The surgeries and medical complications continued until he succumbed to the injuries.

Officer Stowe served with the Houston Police Department for five years. He was survived by his wife, child, parents, twin brother, and two sisters.
