Mann arrested in connection with the death of a prominent daughter of a San Antonio developer



Police have arrested a 24-year-old man in connection with an attack that killed the daughter of a well-known San Antonio developer while jogging.

Joel Angel Zaragoza was accused Tuesday of failing to stop and provide assistance, which resulted in death after a resident reported his damaged car.

Shortly after 7 a.m. on May 2, 53-year-old Lisa Starr Rosenstein was jogging on her shoulder on the 4300 block of the Loop 1604 access road near Lockhill-Selma and the Northwest Military Highway when Zaragoza‘s Ford Focus drifted in the shoulder and hit the woman after an affidavit.

The impact threw Rosenstein into grassland when Saragossa drove off, the affidavit said.

A cyclist driving on the access road saw Rosenstein’s body in the grass and called 911. He told dispatchers he believed she was dead because he couldn’t feel a pulse, but still tried to do CPR until paramedics arrived, the affidavit said.

Investigators said they could identify the make and model of Zaragoza’s vehicle after finding parts of the headlight that broke off during the accident.

Two weeks later, a concerned citizen reported Zaragoza to the police after discovering damage to the right fender and hood of his Ford Focus, the affidavit said.

According to an affidavit, Zaragoza told police that he hit a large object on the road after a puncture on a front tire made him swerve. He told police he thought he hit a deer but wasn’t sure because his windshield was fogged up, the affidavit said.

Rosenstein is the daughter of David Starr, a San Antonio developer and president of Vantage Communities Real Estate Development. He is described as one of the largest low-income landlords in Texas. According to an earlier Express News story, Starr owned approximately 5,000 homes in San Antonio and an additional 3,000 homes domestically in 2017 through its various tax-exempt organizations.

Zaragoza’s bail was set at $ 50,000.
