Ted Roy Lenze

June 29 1992

Age 37, Houston
in the press his name was often spelled Lenz

   

DOB 9/27/54

  

From what I have told by those close to the story, Ted Lenze, age 35 at the time,
was hospitalized for a brain tumor. I understand James Lutz was
his guest and Lenze went downstairs for something, experienced a
brain aneurysm and was taken to the hospital. No one knew
the man upstairs (bound in the coffin) was there, and he suffocated.

Addendum: Oct 2017
After research in ancestory databases:


and his DOB was 9/27/54
So Lenze survived almost two years after the incident.
