Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
KAUFMAN, Texas (AP) - A North Texas police chief says he doesn't have any information suggesting that a top-notch prosecutor feared for his life before he was fatally shot outside his office.
No arrests have been made since the killing Thursday of Mark Hasse, an assistant district attorney in Kaufman County.
Kaufman police Chief Chris Aulbaugh says investigators continue to examine the crime scene and sift through Hasse's cases in hopes of finding a person of interest in his death.
Aulbaugh said Friday that there is no indication of any fear on Hasse's part before he was killed.
The slaying of 57-year-old Hasse rattled prosecutors across the state and angered those who worked with him in Kaufman, located 33 miles southeast of Dallas.
The reward for information in the case has reached nearly $65,000.
