Quietly Into The Night

Back in 2000, the Texas Seven escaped from the Texas prison system and, as a consequence, Irving Police Officer Aubrey Hawkins ended up dead in the parking lot of an Oshman's in Irving on Christmas Eve. I remember his mother, Jayne Hawkins, being all over the news filled with venom for her son's killers. (She eventually sued TDC but the case was dismissed and she was ordered to pay court costs. She wasn't happy.) Without fanfare, her obituary appeared in the Dallas Morning News today.
