MCALLEN, Texas – A Filipino man who taught special education was found dead in his apartment on Tuesday after he failed to report for work.

Firemen found Louie Blanquera, 60, dead on the floor inside his apartment after co-workers from Austin Middle School noticed he did not show up at his class that morning.

While there is no official word yet from police on cause of death, initial investigations show Blanquera may have died from a heart attack.
