The murder of Caitlyn Reed has the McLennan DA's staff stonewalling The Legendary
Waco - The final moments of Caitlyn Reed's life must have been filled with terror. Her alleged attacker had beaten her with a cane, threatened to rape and beat her again in a telephone message, and even attacked the ambulance in which she was transported to get medical attention.
She went to her father's house and “borrowed” a Springfield XD .40 caliber semiautomatic pistol to defend herself. Her attacker came to her home, took it away from her, and gave it back to her father, the owner of the weapon.
Ms. Reed made a second trip to her father's house to get the pistol. She had it when on April 5, he returned to her home on Tokio Loop Road near West.
Following whatever happened next, he phoned McLennan County Sheriff's officers and said he had found her dead, an apparent victim of suicide.
They didn't buy his story. They accused him of taking the firearm away from her, and shooting her with it. They arrested him for murder because the physical scene, the location of the gun, her body at repose in death, did not match what he told them.
