    TX - David Stevens, 53, killed in random machete attack, Dallas, 12 Oct 2015

    A former Texas A&M football player as been identified by police as the machete murderer who hacked a jogger to death on a trail Monday, to the horrifying witness of a passing cyclist.

    The slashing victim was not carrying identification at the time of the attack. He has only been identified as a white male, police said.

    "It appears that Mr. Johnson picked this victim at random. It's absolutely random. He just attacked him. He told our homicide detectives that he was angry about a situation and he just picked somebody to murder," Dallas police Deputy Chief Rob Sherwin told KXAS-TV.

    Stunningly, Brandon told the station he saw 6-7 blows as he rode by the attack allegedly carried out by the 2012 A&M dropout.

    "He just attacked him. He told our homicide detectives that he was angry about a situation and he just picked somebody to murder. I believe there's more to that story. It's just very unusual. It's quite shocking."

    Former Texas A&M football player Thomas Linze Johnson was out of football and out of his home.

    But last year, Johnson was arrested on three charges — evading arrest, burglary of a habitation and auto theft — in Dallas County. He allegedly broke into his aunt’s house and stole her minivan and money.

    There were three other strange murders within 3 miles of the same park last night.

    A beautiful 18 year old girl found murdered in her minivan near her home, and two women found shot to death in their house.

    Police say the football player is not a suspect in the 18 year old's death.

    If I lived in that neighborhood I would be a bit on edge.

    Two days after snagging three key catches in a stunning 29-24 win over top-ranked Alabama on Nov. 10 in Tuscaloosa, Ala., Johnson simply disappeared an hour before an A&M practice. His cell phone went straight to voicemail, and two days later his mother pleaded through tears in her front yard and in front of TV cameras for the safe return of her son.

    Johnson, who apparently left College Station on his own accord, never returned to A&M.

    Starting to sound like yet another killer with untreated mental illness. Maybe we should restrict access to machetes.

    I completely agree! Plus machete attacks are particularly horrifying, if folks have seen photos of the victims they won't soon forget it. Huge open cuts clear through to the bone.

    Wow This guy is definitely mentally ill. If he does that when he gets mad then he needs to be locked up and isolated.

    This is the type of person that will be a danger to other inmates. I am very concerned that he will be sent to a normal jail and get a cellmate. One day he will get mad at his cellmate and bad things will happen.

    I hope LE realizes he cannot be with other cellmates. He is a real danger.

    I think when somebody's wanting to kill, they just use whatever they have access to.
    But I agree, I'd prefer a bullet to a hacking or blunt force beating

    I would not doubt he has been in trouble before.. He probably has an extensive record and has been " protected" because he plays football. He exemplifies the current version of the " scholar athlete " no doubt about it.

    The aunt that he robbed in the past said he has given the family trouble for quite some time. I'm betting that he's a drug user and that caused him to lose his scholarship, football, future, get booted out of the family home, etc... and he sits around all day stewing on how it's all not his fault, how everyone is against him, how he needs to get back at the man, the system, etc, and this is the result.

    Machetes are not easy to conceal. Sounds like he decided he wanted to hack someone up so he went to the park and waited for the right "random" passerby.

    I agree - and if he didn't have access to a machete he may have used a rock. Maybe we could ban rocks.

    A guy like that does have a lot of options for killing. He is super strong and probably can run really fast. It would be hard to stop someone like him no matter what he used. Most killers aren't in good physical shape so a gun does the trick. Quick, easy.

    TX - Thomas Johnson, fmr Aggie star, kills random stranger, White Rock Creek Trail

    Updated: Police say former Texas A&M receiver randomly hacked jogger to death in Dallas
    Tristan Hallman -- Dallas Morning News
    Published: October 12, 2015 11:13 am

    Thomas Johnson was angry Monday about his situation in life, police said.

    The former Skyline High School Raiders star and Texas A&M was out of football and out of his home. And police say he took out his rage on a jogger he hacked to death at random Monday morning in northeast Dallas.

    Authorities said Johnson, 21, admitted to detectives that he used a “large bladed knife” to kill the unidentified jogger just before 8 a.m. on the White Rock Creek Trail.

    “It appears Mr. Johnson picked this victim at random. Absolutely random,” Deputy Chief Rob Sherwin said. “He just attacked him. … It’s just very unusual. It’s quite shocking.”

    [...]
    Police said Johnson told dispatchers that there was a man on the trail “laying down with a sword in his head and not moving.”

    [...]
    When police showed up, Johnson allegedly told an officer, “I need to talk to you.”

    Johnson, who had blood on his pants, told the officer, “I just committed capital murder,” according to an arrest warrant affidavit. He repeated the sentence.

    The officer asked what he meant. Police said Johnson replied, “It’s like when you don’t wake up.”
