Police release second sketch of possible suspect in shooting of Texas lesbians

New sketch released in shooting of young Texas lesbians
15 July 2012

Local police have released a second sketch in the shooting of two Portland, Texas lesbians.

Last month, 23 June, Mary Christine Chapa and her girlfriend, Mollie Judith Olgin, were found together in a park. Both had been shot in the head; Olgin was pronounced dead at the scene and Chapa has been recovering from her wounds.

As reported by ABC News, Portland police released a second sketch of a suspect in the crime. The new drawing is based on a second meeting Chapa had with the sketch artist.

‘It is unusual to go back and refine a suspect drawing,’ police Chief Randy Wright said to ABC News. ‘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.’

According to Wright, although Chapa is recovering she is doing all she can to assist law enforcement in finding the culprit in Olgin’s death.

‘She wants very badly to help us identify Mollie’s murderer,’ the police chief said. 

The physical description of the suspect has not changed. He’s a white 20s year old male, 5 foot 8 inches tall,  140 pounds, brown hair and a scruffy beard.

As of now, the crime is not considered  a hate crime. Federal law enforcement agencies, the Texas Rangers and Texas Department of Public Safety are assisting Portland law enforcement in the investigation.
