New Sketch Of Texas Gunman Released

OlginChapa

On Saturday, June 22nd, young lesbian couple Mollie Judith Olgin (19) and Mary Christine Chapa (18) were shot by an unknown gunman in a park near Corpus Christi, Texas. Olgin died of her wounds; Chapa, who was shot in the head, is slowly regaining her former communicative abilities, and has met for the second time with a police sketch artist to refine a previous drawing of her attacker. (See right.)  120714-suspect-Composite-1p.380

From MSNBC.com:

"It is unusual to go back and refine a suspect drawing," said Chief Randy Wright. "But in this case, our eyewitness sustained a brain injury that initially affected her ability to communicate effectively. The good news is she has made exceptional progress. Her sight and speech have improved and she can now interact with the artist much better."

On the night of the attack, the girls intended to depart the park to go see a movie. They were found where the gunman left them on the morning of June 23rd, approximately nine hours after the attack.

  1. Wow, that is incredibly detailed for a police sketch.

  2. I bet he is a psycho antigay Christian who wants to kill all gay people. There are a few antigay people in governments and religions who want to wage war on LGBT people and they are stirring up the masses to do harm to gays, the most well know are the antigay Christian hate groups where you can find a list of them at the Souther Poverty Law Center web site. Like the Civil War to free the slaves there are people who want to turn people against each other to make a war on gays in America. These antigay criminals need to be caught and brought to justice before they can murder any other young women or anybody for being a minority.

  3. That really is an amazingly detailed police sketch. Most of them are so generic they could be anyone or no one. Assuming it's accurate (eyewitness testimony is notoriously weak), surely someone will be able to identify the shooter.

  4. That picture is really good. I feel like I could go out on the street and find someone who looks just like that. That's the caliber of artist law enforcement nationwide needs to employ.

  5. "I bet he is a psycho antigay Christian who wants to kill all gay people."

    I'm sure you do. Looks like a drug dealer to me.

  6. I live in Texas. It doesn't matter if they catch this guy or even if he confesses he will still not be given a full sentence.
    We have FEDERAL hate crime laws but they only come into effect if the state validates it as a hate crime. Here in Texas they almost never do because they don't want the Feds to come in and take over - that would mean the police and justice system down here would have to behave themselves and they don't like to do that.

    Having hate crime laws is a great idea but until we can actually have a non corrupt way of using them they are pretty much useless.

  7. Lets be honest with ourselves, if th attacker was a minority, this site nor any of the other overly PC gay sites would ever release the sketch. Beause it's a white attackrr... It's being reported and he's being identified as such. I've seen too often the media be very enthusiastic to reveal the identity of a caucasian attacker but fail to even mention the race of a black/hispanic attacker in the media release.

    And yes. Being a lesbian, especially identifiable one, we get so much disdain and resentment from people in the streets who name call and even harass.

  11. I agree with Isabella. It's unfortunate that most anti gay attacks are done by black straight men and we're told to not talk about it. When something happens in strong patterns, it needs to be called out.

  12. You know, when a white guy [or woman] does something bad, is arrested for assaulting and robbing dozens of people for example, you'll be hard pressed to find other white people defend him, and they'll be no demonstrations or riots by the 'white community'. When a black guy gets busted for doing something bad, there will frequently be protests and a fair number of the 'black community' will come to his defense. It's crazy, but it is what it is.

    I don't think you'll find any white people who don't think this guy should be caught asap, except for a tiny number of crazies. When he gets caught [hopefully] there will be no protests by 'white' advocates, no anger in the 'white' community that he's really just an innocent white man being framed, etc. It is what it is.

  13. This site could really do with fewer trolls. It's tedious, obvious, and lame.

  15. Isabella: I remember seeing the video of the beating of a white trans woman in a fast food joint by a teenaged black woman on queer websites only last year.

    Ratbastard: Ever heard of George Zimmerman? How about the Central Park Jogger and the Central Park Five? The Scottsboro Boys? I'm not saying that blacks don't commit crime, including gay bashing, it's just that there is a long and continuing history of blacks being framed for crimes they did not commit.
