For those of you familiar with the tragic New Year’s Day death of Esme Barrera or read about it on my blog, the police just announced that the prime suspect in her murder was found dead of an apparent suicide on January 12th. You can read more details at the Statesman or The Chronicle.
The suspect was implicated in several other attacks and sounded like one terrible piece of shit. I’m glad he won’t be able to harm anyone ever again.
I’m so happy that the city of Austin has some sort of answers and I can only pray that the police are right and this will help the Barrera Family have some closure.
I don’t believe for a minute that the deceased Mr. Brown is established as the murderer. APD has poor track record for DNA lab work.
Much pressure from community to solve crime. If Mr. Brown did it then why is APD still asking for help??? Fishy…….DA office must not be too convinced either lol.
Just me- I thought about that too and agree that it could be a possibility, but all the signs seem to point to highly likely. I will be curious to see what more details are released, if they are.
