PORTLAND, Texas — Investigators in Portland, Texas have released a sketch of a suspect in the shooting of a lesbian teen couple at a public park in suburban Corpus Christi last month.

A spokesperson for the Texas Department Of Public Safety told LGBTQ Nation that a witness described the alleged gunman as a “skinny” male in his 20s, weighing approximately 140 pounds.

The sketch was released late Wednesday by Texas law enforcement agencies participating in the investigation.

Mary Kristene Chapa, 18, and Mollie Judith Olgin, 19, were both found June 23 in a park with gunshot wounds to the head.

Olgin died from her injuries and Chapa remains in hospital in critical condition. She is conscious and although unable to speak has communicated with family members.

The two women were involved in a romantic relationship, according to their families and friends, although Portland Police Chief Randy Wright told reporters, “There’s no evidence to suggest that this crime was committed as a bias against the girls or their lifestyle.”

Portland police continue to investigate the murder of Olgin and the aggravated assault on Chapa.
