Dallas Attorney Brian Loncar found dead

(KLTV) - Attorney Brian Loncar, whose professional nickname was "The Strong Arm," was found dead on Sunday. This happened only two days after his 16-year-old daughter's funeral.

His daughter, Grace Loncar, died on Nov. 25 after a long struggle with depression, which family says led to her suicide.

According to the Dallas Morning News, it is unknown at this time where his body was found or the cause and manner of his death.

However, police responded to the downtown offices of his law firm Sunday morning, according to Dallas Morning News. He had been taken to a hospital overnight, according to an Associated Press report.

Loncar's office released a statement Sunday evening regarding his passing.
