GATESVILLE, Texas (KWTX) Coryell County Chief Deputy Sheriff Mark Wilcox has resigned a week after he was placed on administrative leave during an investigation of unspecified allegations that Texas Rangers now have joined.

Coryell County Sheriff Scott Williams confirmed the resignation Wednesday.

Last week he said the allegations involved “personnel issues,” but provided no further detail.

“That’s all we can share with you right now,” Williams said.

Wilcox had been with the Coryell County Sheriff’s Office since December 1997 after serving as a police officer for 10 years in Clifton.

He’s a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and a 2007 Criminal Justice graduate of Hill College in Hillsboro.
