    TX - Betty Ingram, 35, Copeville, 16 July 1987

    http://www.kten.com/Global/story.asp?S=4484167
    Odis Dale McDonald, 45, was arrested for the murder of Betty Ingram.

    "Betty Ingram was murdered in her own home on July 17, 1987," says Mr. Roach. "I authorized our Cold Case/Fugitive Unit to investigate this case in early 2005. Hard work and tenacity on the part of our investigators resulted in a warrant being issued for the arrest of Mr. McDonald."

    Question She was my relation Id sure like to know more

    Im so glad they didnt forget about her and re opened this case!
    I sure wish I could find out more information about the whole case why it took so long and what exactly brought on the arrest.

    I have gone to several articals and they same almost the same thing.
    They dont show a picture of him or tell to much about him or even release hes criminal history.
    I did find something through Goggle on an older pending appeal in Texas but wasnt pacific , Also how can we find out when the trial is and sentencing ect..
    I could call my relations but as they said in an inteveiw there are happy that he is behind bars but this brings in all up again for them and its very painfull Can anyone Help me find more answers ?
    God Bless

    I did a quick web search. It was late and I was running out of time but here are two things I found. One is a PDF copy of a newspaper page which tells a little info and the other is just a video from a news station. the video tells less than the newspaper article.

    . . .McDonald, who has a long list of laundry; has
    been convicted of sexual crimes including
    Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child, Aggravated
    Rape, and other crimes.
    Sentenced to Life in prison on July 7, 1981, he
    was released in January of 1987 on Mandatory
    Supervision. Less than six months later he
    now confesses to having committed murder the
    year of his release. . .

    From September 2006:

    He pleaded guilty to a first-degree charge of murder and received a life sentence for his crime...

    According to autopsy records filed in the Collin County Medical Examiner's Office, Ingram died as the result of strangulation after being choked with a pair of pantyhose.

    Collin County District Attorney John Roach said last February investigators have a "strong reason to believe she had been sexually assaulted.” The autopsy said Medical Examiner Dr. William Rohr tested Ingram with a rape kit, but did not reveal the results.
