Another murder of a teenager happened last week in Waco, Texas and it took the involvement of the US Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force to finally bring about an arrest of the suspect 8 days later. When serious crimes like this happen in nearby communities to Killeen-Temple, it affects our quality of life by extension.

I don't know about you, but the idea an at large murder suspect is on the loose for over a week in Central Texas isn't the most comforting idea. That's why I am thankful we have a service like the US Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force.

You might recall the last time a teenage murder suspect was at large for killing a teen in Waco, the US Marshals Fugitive Task Force jumped into action, and made an arrest.
