According to a new report by MSNBC, Mary Kristene Chapa worked with a forensic artist from the Texas Rangers on Friday to update the drawing of the man who attacked her and Mollie Olgin on June 22 in Portland, Texas.
When asked what came to his mind when he saw the sketch, Olgin’s father, Mario, told local NBC News affiliate kristv.com, “I think monster, you know. That guy took my daughter away from us.”
“We call on the police and public officials in Portland to ensure that justice is served and the savages behind this sadistic slaying are placed behind bars,” said Truth Wins Out Executive Director Wayne Besen on June 26. “We are deeply saddened by the heartbreak and horror that just occurred in Texas. We hope that Chapa fully recovers and our thoughts are with both families in this tragic time.”
Olgin, 19, and Chapa, 18, were brutally shot on June 22. Both young women were found with gunshot wounds to the head. Olgin had already passed by the time help arrived. Chapa is currently in stable condition holding on and fighting for her life while using sign language to communicate to hospital staff.
