The leader of a group of prison escapees that became known as the Texas Seven is dead. At 6:22 p.m. Wednesday, the state of Texas executed George Rivas, the highest profile death row inmate in years.
Investigators with the Irving Police Department have identified, but not located, the suspected driver in a hit and run accident that severely injured a woman and child.
Two of the notorious “Texas 7″ prison escapees have lost federal court appeals, moving them a step closer to execution for killing an Irving police officer more than a decade ago after breaking out of a South Texas prison.
This the third day in a row Irving has had a bank robbery. Two of those three days, it’s been at the same bank.
