A MURDER IN TEXAS
On February 11,1992, a murder was committed in the state of Texas.
Unlike most murders, there was no BOLO (be on the lookout) issued.
There was no investigation or evidence collected.
No man hunt or arrest warrant was issued.
No reward was put up for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the
perpetrator(s) of the crime.
There were numerous witnesses to the murder, yet none were questioned about it.
While those witnesses had actually seen the person(s) committing the crime, none came forward with accusations, and no one spoke up to defend the criminal(s) either.
The perpetrator(s) were never put on trial.
Perhaps the MOST astounding thing is that the witnesses watched the murder and not one of them stepped in to help the victim!
So, we have to ask, WHY?
Why were there were no arrests or trials when there were eyewitnesses to the murder and those that took part were present at the scene?
This murder did not only take place IN Texas, but was committed legally BY the state of Texas with the blessings of the entire state legal system.
This is the story of Johnny Frank Garrett.
A 17 year old, mentally challenged, young man with a 7th grade education, who was arrested on November 9, 1981, in Amarillo, Texas for the rape and murder of a 76 year old nun.
When the story is over, you can make your own judgement.
I will try to present the FACTS of the case without embellishment, which happens so often in “the true story of,” movies.
