Despite the deluge of stories on how white supremacists and other gangs are killing prosecutors, Texas police have said that they believe that the recent murders of District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia and an assistant DA, were the work not of gangland hitmen but a disgruntled former justice of the peace named Eric Williams, 46. However, Williams is thus far charged with making a “terroristic threat” to residents via email and being held on $3 million bond.
Police told media that they have “strong evidence” linking Williams to the murders.
Williams had previously been successfully prosecuted by the two male victims. He was convicted in March 2012 of burglary of a building and theft by a public servant. The evidence in the case was conclusive. It included surveillance video of Williams taking computer equipment from a county building. He was given two months of probation but lost his justice of the peace position.
He is known for being seen zipping around on a Segway in fatigues as a member of the Texas Guard.
