MSNBC:

Mollie Judith Olgin, 19, and Mary Christine Chapa, 18, were found in knee-deep grass in a nature area in Portland by a couple Saturday, said Portland Police Chief Randy Wright, who confirmed to msnbc.com details first reported by the Corpus Christi Caller Times. Olgin, originally from Ingleside but recently living in Corpus Christi, died; Chapa, of Sinton, was rushed to a hospital where she had surgery and was in serious but stable condition on Sunday, local NBC affiliate kristv.com reported. Wright said Chapa was still in the hospital on Monday...

...When asked if police had been able to determine if the girls' sexuality played any role in the shootings, Wright told msnbc.com: “That’s always something that we’re looking for, but as of this point, we have not been able to establish that that had anything to do with the attack.”

He said they had been in communication with Chapa. He noted all indications were that “third parties” were involved in the assault. “If we had a name, you know, we’d be having a different conversation right now. But we have not been able to gather enough information to identify a suspect yet,” he said. “It appears as if … this was not just a random attack but that’s something that we really have to develop over time.”

Police say bullet casings were found at the scene and neighbors heard loud noises that could have been the gun, late on Friday night. According to police, the girls were found part way down an embankment off a scenic overlook. Police estimate the girls were found approximately nine hours after the attack.

  6. Hopefully, national news will pick this up soon- and they will find the killer(s) and serve them justice.

    Rest in peace, Mollie. And I hope Mary can recover soon.

  8. Not a word on The National News...

    guess they would have had to bump the silly story of a bear cub in a garage, which I must have seen 5x today alone.

    Despicable.

  9. if they were targeted for being queer--and my guess is yes--then this is getting to the level of mathew shepard in terms of pure premeditated atrocities against lgbt people.

  12. This horror greeted me when I logged on to Facebook in the "trending articles" box. I imagine it will be on the major news outlets in the morning. One can hope, although this is the kind of news you hate to hear.

  14. maybe it was a murder/suicide??

  15. Violence always escalates when marriage equality is in the news and this year looks to break all records for murders, induced suicides and beatings.

    You can blame every bigot who ever opposed marriage equality or who says that states rights trump civil rights. You can blame every cult leader whoever called for killing us and got away with it.

  20. When you act against the norms of your gender, you attract specific attention. Some may want to examine why that is. Being "butch" and female does not always make a welcoming statement.

  21. Seriously, what is the gay communities obsession with mannerisms, and ridiculing fem acting gay men and masculine acting lesbians? Honestly, we heteros don't care about it as much as you all seem fixated on such a petty thought. There's straight men who are as fem as Ryan Seacrest and straight women very masculine and it's whatever for us. Damn. You all need to get over judging each other. And I say this as a straight man with a gay brother who usually gets taunted for being feminine not by straight people but gay people he meets.

  22. @ Str8DudeGayBro

    It's the big disgraceful elephant in our LGBT room that we haven't tackled as much as we should yet. The hate, phobia and prejudice butch lesbians and effiminate gay men experience WITHIN the community.

    It's truly deplorable and an epidemic which needs addressing. Until which, homophobia will never be resolved. You can't fight for rights when you deny respect to members of your own community. Everyone needs to remember that.

  23. Rick, kindly go f*ck yourself. It's is people like you that have made this world the hellhole that it is. Your death could only improve it.

  24. Praying for the survivor. Praying for society as a whole to wake up and understand that these people are our sisters, our cousins, our friends. Because they were BORN with a different sexual orientation does NOT make them different anymore than someone that is right handed vs. left handed. Blue eyes vs. brown eyes.
    Really let's evolve as a society and get rid of the labels and stigma associated with homosexual vs. heterosexual.

  25. This story is heartbreaking.

    Rick, they don't even look butch! (Not that it should matter.) Stop blaming the victims.
