A man who had been a “person of interest” in the 2007 murder of a 68-year-old woman in North Richland Hills, was shot to death Sunday night in Oklahoma City, police said.
Whitley Bowley, believed to be in his mid 30s, was gunned down in what police believe was domestic disturbance turned violent at a home in the 14000 block of Scott Street, said Lt. Kevin Parton, spokesman for Oklahoma City police.
Investigator Keith Bauman, police spokesman in North Richland Hills, confirmed Monday that Bowley was one of a three men who were considered persons of interest in the death of Marianne Wilkinson (shown here) on Dec. 9, 2007.
Wilkinson, 68, was shot to death while answering the doorbell at her home in the 8400 block of Spence Court in North Richland Hills, a possible case of mistaken identity.
Taylor’s wife, with whom he was going through a divorce at the time of Wilkinson’s death, lived in a home with the same address number on a parallel cul-de-sac — one block away from the Wilkinson home.
Lt. Parton said he learned from media in Oklahoma City that Bowley had been a person of interest in the Texas cold case.
He said Bowley’s girlfriend called 911 at about 8:30 p.m. to report that he had been beating her and she shot him.
“She took the magazine out of the gun, set it down and went outside to meet with police,” Parton said.
The woman cooperated with officers who questioned her, but there were no arrests on Sunday, Parton said.
The case will be submitted to a district attorney, who will decide whether to prosecute the woman, Parton said.
A Fort Worth woman says an ex-boyfriend, as a way to get back at her, had threatened to email out videos of the couple engaged in sexual acts. To prove his intent, he emailed her the vidoes. Until then, she did not know they existed.
She tried to ignore it all until one day last spring when virtually everyone she knew, including her parents, got emails containing the videos.
“My parents actually came to my house around 5:30 a.m. and woke me up because my dad had received the email,” the woman said.
On Thursday, Philip Welch Ingram was indicted by a Tarrant County grand jury on charges of improper photography/visual recording and breach of computer security. If convicted, he faces up to two years and jail a $10,000 fine.
Meanwhile, a lawyer says "revenge porn" is the same as "cyber rape."
The Ethan Couch story has grabbed headlines around the world.
On the night of June 15, Couch, 16, got drunk and was speeding down a rural road in south Tarrant County when he crashed his pickup and killed four people.
Couch, admitted responsibility and was found guilty, but here’s the part that went “viral.”
On Dec. 10, state District Judge Jean Boyd sentenced Couch to 10 years’ probation and intensive therapy, which was sharply criticized on social media and national talk shows. Critics said Couch got off easy because his parents had money and could pay for his expensive therapy at a rehab facility in California.
Agents still suspect him in the 2009 shooting deaths of his two teenage daughters in Irving.
The bureau even increased the reward to $200,000 for information that could lead to Said's capture.
The killings drew national attention when some family members claimed that the girls were victims of an “honor killing” because they had brought shame to the family. Authorities have declined to comment on a motive.
