[Updated] Man Booked In Wise County Jail For Alleged Murder In The Paradise Case From Yesterday


Disclosure: I was appointed this morning by the Court to represent the juvenile. However, it is my belief, after talking to authorities, that the juvenile will not be charged, is not connected to any crime, and will be released from detention this afternoon.  Obviously, the appointment puts me in a position of protecting the juvenile above anything else. Any posts and any comments will be moderated accordingly. (Above information is public record taken from the WCSO website.)

Edit at 4:55 p.m.:   This afternoon the juvenile in this case was released from detention with no charges being filed.  He is not considered a suspect, and has cooperated fully with the police and, specifically, the Texas Ranger assigned to the case and investigators with the Wise County Sheriff's Office. From the facts, it would appear that law enforcement became aware of the alleged murder prior prior to the juvenile learning about it.  Before his release, he was consulted with by Child Protective Services who took measures to ensure his safety and well being. As to the future, I expect him to be attending public school on the first day of class.
