Police release sketch of suspect in shooting of lesbian couple in Texas

Thursday, July 5, 2012

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.

  9. why would you want to do that? yea, he was wrong and it’s a huge hate crime, but you wanting to kill him makes you just as wrong & hateful. seeking justice is one thing, but there are other ways of doing it.

  10. Probably cause the system doesnt usually bring justice. An eye for an eye.

  11. It’s sad to have so much hate in your heart for someone you don’t even know, Now he has ruined his life by doing what he did. I hope he pays dearly for this.

  13. Is it me or does that drawing look a lot like Adam Levine? Anywho, I am going to read the article. Terrible that someone is willing to kill 2 people just because of their sexuality. Horrible!

  14. i find it odd that they refer to them as a “Lesbian couple” rather than “A couple”… still not on equal ground.
