Jimmy Ethridge has been dead more than a month now, killed with a .22-caliber rifle shot to the head. Still, no one knows yet the consequences of his secret life in this small central Texas town. Ethridge, a 38-year-old insurance salesman, had been exposed to AIDS. His landlord thought he was a saint. She did not know that Ethridge preyed on young boys, not only here, but in Louisiana, Mexico, Arkansas, Mississippi and California. Those are the places officials know about so far.

Jimmy Glenn Ethridge, the slain insurance salesman who Texas authorities feared may have passed the AIDS virus to dozens of children, was never exposed to the disease, Dr. Charles Petty, the Dallas County medical examiner, said. Petty, who performed an autopsy on Etheridge, said that an earlier analysis indicating exposure to the AIDS virus was wrong. Etheridge, 37, was shot to death June 29 in his Marlin, Tex., home by a 16-year-old house mate who authorities say will not be prosecuted.

Health officials say they now believe a man suspected of having sex with dozens of boys carried the AIDS virus for at most a month before he died and probably could not have infected many of them with the disease. Dr. Charles Petty, the Dallas County medical examiner, said Friday that his office was preparing to test the accuracy of an experimental test for the acquired immune deficiency syndrome virus performed during an autopsy on Jimmy Glenn Ethridge.
