62-year-old man found dead on ground in Red Bird area

Dallas police are looking for information about the killing of a 62-year-old man in the city's Red Bird area.

There are very few details about what led up to the murder, including how he was killed.

Police say on Sunday, May 21, they responded to a call and found the man lying on the ground on Cleardale Drive. He died from his injuries.

"He was fun-loving. He liked to joke a lot," she said.

Now, memories are all Ollie has left.

"He loved me as his niece. Period."

Ollie says Dunmeyer was found dead inside the home on Cleardale Drive in the Red Bird area of Dallas on Sunday. Police say his body was found around 2:45 p.m.

A neighbor told fox4 it appeared Dunmeyer was hit in the head with something. Police would not confirm that, but they did tell us how Dunmeyer was killed is part of the investigation. 

"We’re depending on the detectives to give us the right answers and find that killer," Ollie said.

Ollie says her Uncle Curt, as she called him, grew up in South Carolina. He’s lived in Dallas since 2016. Ollie says they have a big family. Most still live in South Carolina. 

She told FOX 4 Dunmeyer leaves behind two sons, three siblings and a handful of nieces and nephews. 

"I can’t understand how somebody could be so cruel. It was cruel," she said.

Police have said little about the investigation, including whether they're looking for more than one suspect, if it was a stranger that killed Dunmeyer or someone he knew or a possible motive.

Ollie says the family doesn’t know if any of Dunmeyer’s belongings were taken from his house. She just wants answers. 

"He didn’t deserve to die the way that he did," she said. "Please, somebody come forward."

Anyone with information is asked to call Dallas Police's Homicide Unit at 214-671-3690.
