HALE CENTER, TX (KCBD) - The investigation continues in the Hale Center bomb scare that evacuated part of the town. Corp. John Gonzalez with DPS says that the Texas Rangers are still investigating the incident and that the suspects are still on the loose.
Authorities blew up a device near 15th and Main Street in Hale Center on May 27th. It started with a call to police that someone had been stabbed. When officers arrived, the victim told them someone had placed a bomb under the hood of his truck.
The victim's name has not been released, however, KCBD NewsChannel 11 received calls from neighbors of the house where the truck was found, and they told us that the victim might be Charles Joslin. He's the radio DJ that was recently charged for stealing money from listeners in an on-air scam.
Investigators will not confirm that Joslin was the Hale Center stabbing victim. He was taken to the hospital where he was treated and released.
Authorities are still searching for the two suspects. The first is a white man, about six feet tall. He is bald with a salt and pepper beard. Investigators tell us he also has a swastika tattoo on his left forearm.
The second suspect is a Hispanic man, about 5'7" tall. He was clean shaven with black hair that was "slicked back." Both men were seen riding in an older model, dark colored pickup truck, possibly black.
