    Misidentification?

    Respectfully snipped for focus and BBM.
    I agree.
    My opinion and speculation is that the "history" is most likely that someone messed with someone's spouse/partner.

    The only two things I can think of that would trigger this level of rage in a woman are someone messing with her man, or someone getting her fired.
    Of course, she could be a nut case without any reason other than she thought the decedent looked at her wrong.

    Time will tell.

    Watching the video gave me Amy Fisher vibes

    (A case I certainly have NOT thought about in over a decade)

    Looked more like a trench coat the suspect was wearing? Wouldn’t be shocked if she bought it for this very occasion

    MOO

    Yes....but not sure which one is the “Amy”. Amateur opinion and speculation only.

    She always spoke very highly of him. IDK she was very friendly and chatty at her job. I used to work with her.

    I’m surprised there hasn’t been an arrest, and even more so by the comments Friday that the police need leads. Anymore info from your sources?

    Fridays are big yard sale days in and around the Houston area - a lot of shift workers.

    Wondering if she had advertised in her neighborhood with signs or perhaps on Next Door app?

    Well probably not a paid day just to have a garage sale but using one of her paid days, I would imagine.

    Pretty much every full time job that pays on a W2 offers paid time off around here. Is that unusual? Even full time jobs at gas stations and fast food joints offer paid time off for full time employees. I didn’t realize this was an oddity.

    Doesn’t most full-time work, and even some part-time work, provide vacation days?

    There’s a new law in the state of Texas at least that requires an employer to pay seven sick days a year. I don’t know for sure that it applies to ALL employers but those that do federal work yes it applies.
