July 23, 2020 Today we learned that Candance’s case will once again be submitted to the Bell County District Attorney’s Office to undergo the DA’s “screening” process within the next few weeks.
The first time Candy’s case was submitted to the DA’s office was January 2015 where it sat in limbo for 2 years because the 1st Assistant District Attorney Paul McWilliams “did not have time” to screen her case. Had we been informed by the Killeen Police Department that her case was solved in 2015 her case would not have sat in limbo for 2 years, that I can guarantee you. We did not learn about this until 2017, after reading an article in the Fayetteville Observer news paper about a man who was arrested in TX and through DNA it was found that he had murdered a woman in 2007 in Fayetteville, NC. As I read the article I was amazed first of the similarities of Candance and the other victims murder. Even more amazing was the arresting officer was Detective Harris who is also the detective who solved Candance’s murder. This is what prompted me to call KPD to find out what was going on with Candance’s case. This man I believe not only beat and robbed women in Fayetteville, NC but continued to do the same in Bell County, Texas. I also believe that he could very well be the person who has murdered several in Bell County. This man had been arrested in Bell County several times but DNA was never taken until a brave woman who was raped and badly beaten by him did the right thing and had charges pressed against him, his DNA was finally taken near the end of 2012. Could he have been the monster that took Candance’s life?
That is the $1,000,000.00 question.
Fortunately 1st Assistant DA McWilliams is no longer with the District Attorney Office as he has recently "retired".
What is his name? I will tell you as soon as I find out who Detective Harris suspects murdered Candance. Right now his name is not being released because he is a suspect and has not yet been indicted by the Grand Jury.
The laws are cruel at times, it often feels the victims and their families have no rights when it comes to the murder of their loved one.
Excerpts from Fayetteville Observer
In January 2013, Fayetteville police learned that the DNA collected in both cases matched that of -----, who had been charged in 2012 with beating and raping a woman in Killeen, Texas.
A jury there found him guilty of aggravated assault in May 2014 and ----- was sentenced to 13 years in prison. He was to begin serving that sentence after serving a five-year term for robbery, Killeen police said.
A man who plead guilty to killing a woman at a Fayetteville motel in 2007 was sentenced last week to between 18 and 22 years in prison.
I wonder why NO paper in Bell County ever picked up the story about this man. Why does it seem like it was just not that important?
