    TX - Mark Acuna, 41, found murdered in closet of San Antonio home, 18 Jan 2012

    Bloody corpse found in closet (San Antonio Express-News)
    ---
    San Antonio police Chief William McManus said officers were responding to a call for a burglary at a house on the 200 block of West Ridgewood Court about 8:30 a.m. when they made the discovery.

    A young woman who rents a section of the house told police that she had fallen asleep the night before while the victim and another man were in the home, the chief said.
    ---
    “There is no one running around this neighborhood burglarizing houses,” McManus said. “I think we'll get this guy pretty quick.”

    Well this is a no brainer. Blood splatter and items were stolen and no sign of a break in.

    Chief McManus is fond of the "We'll get our man" construct in easy cases - after
    all, those are the ones you're supposed to solve, and LE usually does. Never a
    bad idea to calm the populace. (McManus has been an excellent chief - came
    to S.A. from a position in D.C., and has worked hard to change the face of what
    was once a dire department.)
