I wrote last week about tomorrow being the 40th anniversary of the UT Tower Shooting. I’ve been updating that post periodically over the past week as new posts have cropped up. I’ve got a few more today:
- K-EYE reports on a retired APD officer who auctioned off one of Whitman’s bullets over the weekend and it sold for $250k. So, if I’ve got this right, an APD officer stole a piece of evidence and then decided to auction it off 40 years later to make himself $250k. Neither of the K-EYE stories mention what’ll happen to the proceeds, but if he’s keeping it all for himself, it seems a little slimy to me.
- Tomorrow has been designated Ramiro “Ray” Martinez Day by the Austin City Council.
- I’ve linked the six-part story on News8Austin in my original post, but here’s a summary page for all of their coverage.
Lastly, thanks to the Austinist for marking my original post as one of their Best of the Austin Blogs picks last week.
