    Search for escaped inmate week 2 #GonzaloLopez #MexicanMafia #PrisonBus #Shackles #RobertHurst 



    Capital murderer Gonzalo Lopez remains on the run in Leon County, now for a full week. There are still no confirmed sightings of Lopez or any evidence to indicate he escaped this area, according to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. Highway 7 still remains closed to through traffic.  In new information from TDCJ, they discovered there was no other suspicious activity during the time Lopez was being transported from Gatesville to Huntsville for a medical appointment.   Corrections officials determined he escaped his restraints and somehow was also able to cut through a metal barrier door to attack the driver.  Other than that activity, they have no reason to think he hitched a ride or stole a vehicle after the escape. They are also making provisions for bad weather possibly coming this weekend.  ”The department is making contingencies of getting rain gear for our officers, making sure everyone is well protected with the severe weather coming in. So we will not call off this search because of bad weather. We will continue looking for him, we will just make the proper plans to get ready for it,” said Robert Hurst, spokesperson for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.  There is still a lot of fear and frustration from residents in Leon County, but County Judge Byron Ryder says he links the escaped inmate is still in the area.  ”I’m kind of with all the law enforcement, I still think he’s here. I think he’s maybe hoping to wait them out where they think he’s not here and they’ll leave. But I do think he’s here. They’ve had a big effort. There are probably 400 to 500 people that are representing five or six different agencies and they’re working hard,” said Ryder.  The reward for Gonzalo Lopez remains at $50,000. He’s an Hispanic male, about 6 feet tall, 190 pounds and last seen wearing his white prison uniform.

    New Petito lawsuit filed against Laundries Gabby Petito's family filed a wrongful death lawsuit.

    New Petito lawsuit filed against Laundries Gabby Petito's family filed a wrongful death lawsuit.

    New Petito lawsuit filed against Laundries Gabby Petito's family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Brian Laundrie's estate in a move that could end with the Petito family's obtaining the presumed killer's "notebook and writings," lawyers said Monday.  The legal maneuver comes after Petito's parents filed a lawsuit March 10 accusing Laundrie’s parents, Christopher and Roberta Laundrie, of hindering the search for their murdered daughter.  In the new civil complaint, filed in Sarasota County, Florida, Petito's mother, Nichole Schmidt, acting as the administrator of her daughter's estate, is targeting Laundrie's estate for "damages which exceed $30,000."   Brian Laundrie took responsibility for Gabby Petito’s death in notebook, FBI says JAN. 21, 202201:00 "The death of Gabrielle Venora Petito resulted from the intentional acts of Brian Laundrie," according to the three-page complaint filed by the parents' attorney, Patrick Reilly.  "As a direct and proximate consequence of Brian Laundrie's tortious conduct, Nichole Schmidt and Joseph Petito incurred funeral and burial expenses, and they have suffered a loss of care and comfort, and have suffered a loss of probably future companionship, society and comfort."  The action, targeting the estate, is not likely to result in any monetary damages, said Steven Bertolino, an attorney for Christopher and Roberta Laundrie.   Brian Laundrie's parents move to dismiss Petitos' civil lawsuit MARCH 31, 202203:10 “This lawsuit will most likely not be defended and the Petitos will have gained nothing more than a piece of paper that tells them what everyone already knows — which is that Brian was responsible for Gabby’s death, as indicated by the FBI,” Bertolino said in a statement Monday.   Petito’s parents are likely to have filed the latest lawsuit in hope of gaining possession of the notebook found with Brian Laundrie’s body, which has writings implicating him in her slaying, Bertolino said.  Lawyers for both sets of parents are “working on that issue” now, Bertolino said.

    Texas inmate escapes ties to Mexican Mafia. #GonzaloLopez #MexicanMafia #Texasinmate #Marshalls  —  



    On the heels of an 11-day statewide manhunt in Alabama that ended with a car chase, crash and the death of a female corrections officer, another manhunt is underway for a dangerous escaped inmate — this time in Texas.  Investigators are searching for Gonzalo Lopez. The Texas Department of Public Safety identified Lopez as an affiliate of the Mexican Mafia, a violent gang often in control of other gangs to the point of “taxing” them for being on their territory.  THE ESCAPE According to the Texas Department of Justice, Lopez made his escape Thursday while on his way from Gatesville, Texas, to a medical appointment in Huntsville, Texas.  Somehow as the prison bus was traveling along State Highway 7 in Leon County, officials say Lopez got out of his handcuffs and shackles and went for the driver’s area of the prison bus.  The driver of the bus put up a fight.  But officials say Lopez stabbed the officer in the hand before the officer pulled the bus to the side of the road. Lopez and the officer jumped out of the bus and kept fighting, while another officer in the back of the bus fired two gunshots into the back tires of the bus.   From there, the Texas Department of Justice says Lopez hopped back on the bus and drove it full of 15 other inmates another mile down the road. Eventually, investigators reported that Lopez lost control of the bus and ran into a cow pasture.  Fortunately, no other inmates escaped custody.  Texas inmate escapes by stabbing prison bus driver  LOPEZ HISTORY Gonzalo Artemio Lopez, 46, is on the Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives List. He is now wanted for escape and aggravated assault of a public servant.  In 1996, the Texas Department of Public Safety says Lopez was convicted of two counts of aggravated assault and sentenced to eight years in prison.  In 2006, he was convicted of capital murder and aggravated kidnapping in Hidalgo County and sentenced to life in prison. The following year, he received a second life sentence after being convicted of attempted capital murder in Webb County.   Investigators report that Lopez is from the Rio Grande Valley area and has ties to Weslaco, Mercedes and San Antonio. The Texas Department of Public Safety said he is an affiliate of the Mexican Mafia.  Lopez is described as being 6 feet tall, about 185 lbs. with tattoos on his back, abdomen and chest. Authorities also say he has a burn scar on the right side of his neck.  INVESTIGATION Texas authorities are continuing to investigate how Lopez escaped his shackles and handcuffs and took over the prison bus.  The manhunt for Lopez continues. Officers were on horseback Sunday scouring rural areas for him as investigators are narrowing their search area.  They believe Lopez may still be hiding in the brush somewhere.  A $50,000 reward for information leading to Lopez’s arrest has been offered. To be eligible for the reward, the Texas Department of Safety says tipsters must give authorities information in one of the following ways:  Call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS (8477). Submit a web tip through the DPS website by selecting the fugitive you have information about and then clicking on the link under their picture. Submit a Facebook tip by clicking the “SUBMIT A TIP” link (under the “About” section). Texas 10 Most Wanted fugitives are considered armed and dangerous. Anyone who sees Lopez is urged not to approach him, but instead call 911.

     A day after one of the deadliest racist massacres in recent American history, law enforcement officials in New York descended on the home of the accused gunman and probed disturbing hints into his behavior, as Gov. Kathy Hochul promised action on hate speech that she said spreads “like a virus.”  The suspect, Payton S. Gendron, 18, shot 13 people on Saturday afternoon at a Tops supermarket in east Buffalo, killing 10, officials said. Almost all the victims were Black — shoppers, grocery workers and a security guard bound together by little more than tragic happenstance.  But Mr. Gendron picked his target carefully, the police said, choosing an area known for its large Black population and even visiting the neighborhood the day before the attack in what authorities described as “reconnaissance.”  And nearly a year before the mass shooting, his words had already caused alarm elsewhere.  The police said on Sunday that Mr. Gendron had been picked up at his high school last June by state police after making a threatening remark and had been taken to a hospital for a mental health evaluation.   Responding to a question for a class project about his post-graduation plans, Mr. Gendron said his involved a murder-suicide, a law enforcement official familiar with the case said.  But Mr. Gendron described the remark as a joke, the official said. And after the evaluation, which lasted about a day and a half, he was released, according to Joseph Gramaglia, the Buffalo police commissioner.  That account was confirmed by Special Agent Steven Belongia of the F.B.I., who said that Mr. Gendron was “not on the radar” of federal authorities.  Mr. Gendron, who the police said wore body armor and camouflage during his spree, is believed to have posted a lengthy screed riddled with racist writings and expressing admiration for a white supremacist ideology known as replace
