Mexico arrests drug runner for murders, robbery
DALLAS, Texas (AP) — A Texas man has been arrested for the kidnapping and murder of a woman he said kidnapped from a convenience store in the Dallas area in 2010, authorities said Thursday.
Bryan Williams, 36, of Dallas faces charges of murder with the use of a firearm and kidnapping, said Maj. Mark Brown, a spokesman for the Dallas County Police Department.
“The murder is a heinous crime,” Brown said, adding that Williams faces the same charges that state troopers faced for the 2010 deaths of two men who were found brutally beaten inside a gas station in the Dallas suburb of Midland, near the Texas-Oklahoma border.
Williams is the owner and operator of a convenience store on the south side of Dallas that is owned by Williams Brothers, an insurance company, according to the company.
Williams told authorities the couple had been out of town for about a week when they ran into Williams at a convenience store in Irving about six weeks before the murder, Brown said. He told detectives Williams asked the woman to come down, and she said yes, Brown said.
Williams and the woman then drove from New Braunfels, Texas, to a remote highway out in the middle of a swampy area known as Big Bend National Park, where Williams told authorities they robbed and shot the woman who was tied up.
Brown described Williams as a young white man with dark hair and dark, greying eyes예스카지노.
The Houston Post quoted police as saying they found several guns, including the rifle police say Williams used in the killings.
Police also took Williams’ gun — an assault rifle — but authorities said it was not recovered during the arrest.
“At this time, the investigation does not appear that there are any additional victims or additional threats,” the sheriff said.
Williams was on vacation near his house, but authorities were abl예스카지노e to secure his location because the home was so remote that “a drone or manned aircraft co더킹카지노uld not make it over,” Brown said.
Brown said Williams knew the victim before her death. Brown said she “had a lot of money and her last words were ‘I love you,’ so I’m pretty certain she was not a drug dealer.”
Police would not say how Williams met the woman, but described it as a “strange case.”
