An 18-year-old girl is helping police hunt for the man who shot her in the head and murdered her girlfriend at a Texas park last month.
Mary Kristene Chapa is still recovering in a hospital bed from brain injuries sustained in the shooting, but she's managed to help police refine their sketch of the suspect who killed her girlfriend, 19-year-old Mollie Judith Olgin, ABC News reports.
"She wants very badly to help us identify Mollie's murderer," Portland, Texas, Police Department Chief Randy Wright told ABC News. "Our eyewitness sustained a brain injury that initially affected her ability to communicate effectively. The good news is she has made exceptional progress. Her sight and speech have improved and she can now interact with the artist much better."
Artist sketch of shooting suspect
Chapa already provided the sketch artist with an initial physical description, but she requested a second meeting to clarify the rendering, Wright said. Her description did not change from the first version.
The suspect is described as a white male in his 20s, 5 foot 8 inches tall, thin build, 140 pounds, with brown hair and a scruffy beard.
