Police have arrested and charged Phillip Walter, 29, and Violetta Walter, 30, for the murder of Officer Don Allen.The race baiters are going to be very disappointed with the outcome of this story. When Tony first brought this to my attention a few days ago, I checked it out and did a little digging into the grey and dark internet. Many fingers were pointing at BlackLivesMatter, Mexican Drug Cartels or a combination of the two (considering the warfare inside prisons that thought is crazy).
The two suspects where linked to stolen property taken from Allen's home. Chief Standridge said it will be up to the Texas Rangers and the District Attorney as to whether they pursue capital murder charges.
Shortly after 6pm, the Texas Rangers and Officers of the APD arrested the couple at a south side apartment complex in the 1000 block of South Clack in Abilene under arrest warrants obtained by the Texas Rangers. They both are being charged with 1st degree felony murder which carries confinement from 5-99 years, or life. Their bond has been set at $500,000 each.
Chief Standridge said the department is confident they have taken the correct people into custody and do not believe there are other suspects.
Putting all that aside.
I'm really curious as to what this was all about. We may never get the whole story on this one. But even a burglary gone bad wouldn't make me think that someone would tie up a homeowner, scrawl anti-police statements on the wall and then make off with gear.
Yeah its happened, but once you discover the person is a police officer? A charge of 1st degree murder instead of capital murder?
Something is off here.
