New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - October 30, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas 2A Q Herald-Zertung □ Thursday, October 30,1997 Mil Witnesses . ■VI ' From Page 1A felony conviction for possessing between 28 and IOO grams of mcthamphetamines. That sentence could be probated for three years, and he would pay a $2,000 fine and reimbursement to the state for lab tests, he said. It would be up to the judge whether Villarreal was given probation or deferred adjudication, die prosecution pointed out. During cross examination, Villarreal denied he made a great deal of money from the sale of the drugs, or that he was part of a major traffic ring in San Antonio and Comal County. He said 4 ounces was the largest amount with which he ever dealt. Villarreal testified that another acquaintance from San Antonio was shot in the back of the head and killed just IO days before bodies of Lamb and Dougherty were found. In 1990, that same individual had been arrested with 122 pounds of methamphetamines and was a manufacturer of the drug, the defense said. The runner who shot the man gave Villarreal a piece of lab equipment to hold for him, Villarreal testified. Wurstfest Defense attorney Jim Pape also asked Villarreal about a conversation he had with Lt. Sumner Bowen in April 1996. During that discussion, Villarreal allegedly told Bowen that Lamb had collected $20,000 from the sale of methamphetamines just prior to his death. According to a report from that conversation, Villarreal said Lamb owed the California supplier $31,000, and his life was in immediate jeopardy. Villarreal denied making the comments. Villarreal also denied that his girlfriend was a carrier and that a “drug hit” was placed on his car. “I never did say drug hit, sir ... There was no drug hit on it,” Villarreal said. Pape asked Villarreal about the death of two people at a San Antonio Bingo Parlor. Villarreal said the killings occurred in 1994 or 1995, and the two were Bandito Gang members. Villarreal said the two had purchased a vehicle from him but never picked it up. He denied being acquainted with them beyond that. Pape asked Villarreal if he still considered himself as only a social user. “That’s what we are,” Villarreal said. “That’s what I am, yes sir.” On re-direct, the prosecution asked Villarreal whether he or Lamb were wealthy. Villarreal said no. He said he lived in an apartment and drove a 1978 Ford pickup, and his girlfriend drove a 1983 Mercedes that her mother gave her. He said he did not own any real property. Lamb drove a late-1980s Toyota pickup, lived in an older mobile home and purchased his clothes from yard sales or KMait. Villarreal also testified that the defendant often used methamphetamines and would ask Villarreal and Lamb for “a bump.” According to court documents, Lamb’s body was found at his residence on Farm-to-Market 306 wrapped in blankets, tied up and stuffed in a water pressure tank. Dougherty’s body was found under a mobile home next to the water pressure tank, covered by a tarp. Naef, who told police the shootings were a result of a murder-suicide, was arrested and charged with the murders five days later. Each victim was shot in the head one time with a .38 caliber weapon, deputies have said. Naef, a former self-employed diesel mechanic, was a social and business acquaintance of the two alleged victims and worked for Lamb, deputies said.
