Lesbian Couple Shot in Head in Texas. One Dead.
This is so shocking and sad. I sobbed when I read this. It brought back the memory of the Matthew Shepard nightmare….
Mollie Judith Olgin, 19, and Mary
Christine Chapa, 18, were found in knee-deep grass in a nature area in
Portland, Texas by a couple Saturday, said Portland Police Chief Randy Wright,
who confirmed to msnbc.com details first reported by the Corpus Christi
The girls had been dating about 5 months.
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.”
Really? How could this be random??
Wright told local station KZTV that the shooting had “the earmarks” of a targeted slaying.
