Officer Down:

It has been an incredibly tragic weekend for law enforcement across the U.S., and especially here in Texas. Yesterday morning we learned of the loss of DPS Special Agent Salas who died protecting our southern border, and now we mourn the loss of Harris County Deputy Constable Charles Galloway who was murdered on a traffic stop last night.

Please keep the families of Agent Salas and Corporal Galloway in your thoughts and prayers.

I would like to reach out to all law-abiding citizens across Texas and the United States in assisting us in protesting the parole of convicted murderer Kenneth Vodochodsky. Kenneth Vodochodsky was convicted for his involvement in the October 1999 ambush murders of Atascosa County Deputy Sheriffs Thomas Monse and Mark Stephenson and Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Terry Miller.

After initially receiving a death sentence from a jury, the sentence was overturned by an appellate court, and he subsequently pled guilty to all three murders in exchange for three 30-Year sentences.
We have created a form parole protest letter that individuals can use, or they may write their own letter.

The form letters may be picked up at the Sheriff's Office at 1108 Campbell Avenue in Jourdanton, Texas or you may go to the link provided in this post and print the letter, fill it out, and mail to the Texas Board of Pardon and Paroles at the address listed on the letter.

We will accept letters turned in to the Sheriff's office through February 28th and we will mail them to the Parole Board.
The case will be reviewed by the Parole Board sometime in early March.

Please help us in keeping this convicted murderer in prison for as long as legally possible.

I join the families of these three brave lawmen in thanking you for your support in this endeavor.

-Sheriff David Soward

After extensive life-saving efforts conducted by the Baylor Scott and White medical professionals, it has been determined that Trooper Chad Walker no longer displays signs of viable brain activity and he remains on life-support until he can share the gift of life as an organ donor. This final sacrifice embodies Trooper Walker’s actions throughout his life and service as a Texas Highway Patrol Trooper. The Walker family is grateful for the continued support and prayers as they remain at Chad’s side.

03/27/2021

All,

On 03/26/2021, at approximately 7:45 PM, Trooper Chad Walker responded to a motorist assist on FM Road 2848 near the intersection of US Highway 84, approximately five miles west of Mexia in Limestone County. Trooper Walker was traveling southwest on FM 2848 as he came upon a disabled vehicle parked on the shoulder of the roadway. Trooper Walker pulled up behind the vehicle. Before Trooper Walker could stop his patrol unit, a black male, identified as Dearthur Pinson Jr., dob: 07/15/1984, immediately emerged from the driver’s seat of the disabled vehicle armed with a handgun and fired multiple rounds at Trooper Walker through the patrol unit’s windshield. As a result, Trooper Walker sustained a gunshot wound to his head and abdomen. Pinson returned to his vehicle, where he retrieved a black backpack and fled the scene on foot. Trooper Walker was transported to Baylor Scott & White – Hillcrest Hospital in Waco, where he remains in stable but critical condition. An extensive search for Pinson continues. A press release has been provided to media outlets, and a Blue Alert has been activated.

The Texas Rangers are leading the investigation and are supported by THP, AOD, CID, and other local, state, and federal partners. VESS Counselors and a DPS Chaplain have also responded and are with the Walker family. Trooper Walker and his wife have a 15-year-old son, twin seven-year-old daughters, and a two-month-old daughter.

Please keep Trooper Walker and his family in your thoughts and prayers during this most difficult time.
