    TX - Tonia Porras, 29, stabbed to death, Jefferson County, 2 Nov 2005

    Hometown News has learned exclusive new information regarding an ongoing murder investigation in Jefferson County. As we first reported, 28-year-old Corey Schuff and 33-year-old Wesley Smith have been arrested for the murder of Tonia Lynn Porras.

    Porras was found dead by her father in the small community of Hildebrandt Acres near Beaux Gardens south of Beaumont in mid-county.

    A very credible source working closely with investigators on this case has revealed new information that may help detectives solve the details leading up to Porras’ death.

    Our source says Schuff and Smith knew each other and were seen together a short time before Tonia’s death. Schuff also apparently recruited Smith to join the Aryan Brotherhood.

    Picture at this link, she was gorgeous. Article was the original report on the murder in Nov.

    According to Sheriff Mitch Woods, Tonia Lynn Porras’ father discovered his daughter’s body Saturday morning and called police.

    Authorities say Tonia and her son lived in a garage apartment of her father’s home.

    At this time, sheriff’s officials don’t have any suspects but say neighbors living in the area shouldn’t panic. They’ve increased patrols in the area and say it’s likely the victim knew her attacker.

    Sheriff Woods says Tonia had been dead approximately 24 to 36 hours before her body was discovered. At this time, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office has asked us not to release extensive details of the killing because it might hinder their investigation. As always, we are honoring that request; however, we can tell you the murder was extremely brutal.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Last November, jurors found Corey Joseph Schuff, of Bridge City, guilty of murdering 29-year-old Tonia Lynn Porras. He was sentenced to life in prison for the killing...

    Porras was killed on Nov. 2, 2005 in a garage apartment adjacent to her father's home in the 2000 block of Hillebrandt Acres... Jurors heard during Schuff's trial that she had been stabbed 26 times and that her body was left bound, gagged and blindfolded on the floor until her father discovered it three days later.
