UMI Investigator In Yogurt Shop Slayings Transferred
AUSTIN (AP) — The officer who has headed up a special task force formed after four teen-age girts were slain at an Austin yogurt shop will soon be transferred to another assignment, a police official says.
Austin police Deputy Chief Bruoe Mills said Monday that Sgt. John Jones' upcoming transfer won't affect the case.
Pam Ayers, the mother of victim Amy Ayers, was not pleased about the transfer.
“We want him to stay,” said Mrs. Ayers. “We’re worried about continuity. This is a complex case. It just can't be handed off.”
Jones has led the task force since January 1992 — a month after 13-year-old Amy Ayers, Eliza Thomas, 17, Jennifer Harbison, 17, and Sarah Harbison, 15, were found dead in the I Can’t Believe It’s Yogurt! shop.
Each of the girls had been shot in the head and severely burned.
Lawsuit! Billy Bob’s Security Workers Boat Up Savon People
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Seven people have filed a lawsuit against the popular nightclub Billy Bob’s Texas, claiming all of them were assaulted by club security and that one man was handcuffed and beaten so badly that he needed emergency surgery.
The lawsuit, filed by four men and three women Monday, came as a surprise to Pam Mi nick, spokeswoman for the Fort Worth establishment.
“There’s two sides to every stay,” she told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “Something had to be provoked because Billy Bob’s security workers don’t go looking for fights, especially when there’s women involved.”
Lawyer Mark Carroll of Dallas, who represents the seven plaintiffs, said the group of Dallas and Wichita County residents went to Billy Bob’s on Nov. 27, 1992, to see a concert by country group Sawyer Brown.
The suit claims that the group was leaving the club when they were accosted by security workers
who accused plaintiff Gaylen Cobb of “throwing liquid on an employee.”
Postmaster Shot In Deweyville
DEWEYVILLE, Texas (AP) — The postmaster of a small Newton County town is recovering from three gunshot wounds he received when a 61-year-old man tried to rob him, officials say.
Jeff Hale, 42, was in stable condition late Monday night following surgery at Baptist Hospital-Orange.
Hale was shot three times Monday morning at the post office in Deweyville, population 1,200.
A would-be robber entered the post office, muttered something about wanting to be executed then fired what appeared to be a .38-caliber pistol, said Newton County Sheriff Wayne Powell.
The man shot the postmaster twice in the arm and once in the lower part of the chest, Powell said.
A postal clerk, who was the only other person in the post office during the shooting, fled to a day care center behind the post office and called the sheriffs office.
