On Saturday Mollie Judith Olgin and Mary Christine Chapa, a couple, were found in a thicket of grass in a Texas park and shot in the head. Olgin has died, and the town of Portland, Texas is now faced with a deeply troubling homicide case. "If we had a name, you know, we’d be having a different conversation right now. But we have not been able to gather enough information to identify a suspect yet," Portland Police Chief Randy Wright told MSNBC. "It appears as if … this was not just a random attack but that’s something that we really have to develop over time."
Chapa and her girlfriend and Olgin had been together for about five months, reports KRIS-TV, an NBC News affiliate based in Corpus Christi. And though the words "hate crime" seems to be the term when trying to explain why someone would shoot an 18-year-old and her 19-year old girlfriend in the head (not to mention that the case closely resembles the 1988 murder/hate crime of Rebecca Wight), Wright still hasn't confirmed if the shooting was a hate crime. "That’s always something that we’re looking for, but as of this point, we have not been able to establish that that had anything to do with the attack," he said.
