I've been following the case of murdered Houston transwoman Myra Ical that happened before I moved back to town.
I was happy to find out while perusing the news last night that the waste of DNA who allegedly committed the crime was already locked up at the HPD Hilton.
46 year old homeless man Lucky Ward was arrested in November and already charged in the strangulation death of 52 year old homeless woman Retia Faye Long.
It turned out that Ward had been busy on a serial killing spree. His DNA connected him not only to the June murder of 24 year old Raquel Mundy, whose car broke down across the street from the Greyhound Bus Station downtown, but to another murdered homeless woman named Carol Flood.
Ward's DNA also links him to Myra Ical's murder and another Houston transwoman, 40 year old Gypsy Rodriguez who was found dead inside her north Houston home on September 13.
So now that we hopefully have our man, it's time for the Harris County prosecutors to do their thang, prosecute alleged killer Lucky Ward. Hopefully a jury will find him guilty and send his behind up I-45 to Huntsville for a long time
