Texas Slave Ranch and Other Hill Country Bizarre Crimes

The True Story of the Texas Slave Ranch - How a Degenerate Ranching Family Got Away With Murder (Texas Grotesque) [Kindle Edition] Richard L. Ellison , Chief Ellison

"Pete the Cook" and Kerr Co. District Attorney Ron Sutton

I am considering expanding this book to include more stories of Kerrville and Hill Country crimes, and getting it published in old style print form. Stories I know about include the serial killer of little children, Nurse Genene Jones, the bizarre violent deaths of Kimble County Sheriff Hal Bynum and his wife Connie, a dynamite bombing in Mason of a witness in a political financial scandal that could have involved LBJ. If you know of any others I'd greatly appreciate you letting me know. You can email me at tejasbulldawg@gmail.com or  leave an anonymous comment on this blog.

With Big Iron on Her Hip: Wendy Davis Favors Open Carry of Guns

by James Moore in Huffington Post

Another bit of news rolls out with more potential Wendy Davis voters asking the question: "What in the hell is she thinking?" In a country of damned-near (I like it that damned-near can be used as a compound modifier) weekly school shootings, the Texas Democratic gubernatorial hopeful told the Associated Press she favors an "open carry" law for gun owners, which means, uh, she thinks people should be able to openly carry guns.
Pragmatism is winning out over principles.
Does Wendy Davis really believe Texas voters are this stupid?

'Flummoxed' Democrats Distance Themselves from Newly Pro-Gun Wendy Davis

Texas Democrats have fiercely defended their gubernatorial candidate, Wendy Davis, through a scandal in which the state senator was caught lying about her status as a single mother and about paying for her own education. However, now that Davis is supporting open carry laws, Democrats and gun control groups are shying away.

Woman Shoots, Kills Boyfriend After Being Punched, Dragged Across Floor

From Breitbart News
Orangeburg, South Carolina Sheriff Leroy Ravenell cited self defense for a woman who shot her enraged boyfriend after he beat her and dragged her through the yard and across the floor on February 2nd.
According to the Post and Courier, 24-year-old Jeremy Scott Williamson "became enraged after looking in his girlfriends's purse and finding papers where he was listed as a suspect for a crime in another jurisdiction." After he argued with her about the papers and refused to let her call her mother to come get her, the woman ran out in the yard where Williamson chased her down and attacked.
He dragged her back inside, "hit her on the back of the head and threw her to the floor."
After hearing the disturbance Williamson's grandfather entered the room and asked his grandson to stop. When Williamson paused to look at his grandfather, the girlfriend was able to grab a handgun and "[shoot] him in the abdomen."
Williamson died from the gunshot.


  1. The slave ranch case has so many sub plots and is so relevant in understanding the local culture, however many of the locals do not want to discuss it because it does not enure to the benefit of their belief system, sort of like a discussion about MWD lies or the crimes of Judge Prohl.

  2. Hello... I was actually on that ranch in June, 1982, at the age of 17. It was... interesting. I'd be real interested in talking to you about it, if you're of a mind to.

    I appreciate it.
