TULIA, TX (KCBD) -
Tulia police and the Texas Rangers are investigating a new lead in the death of Imogene Harris, an 84-year-old woman killed in Tulia on August 14, 2011.
Harris was found dead in her northwest Tulia home. Her disabled daughter, who was in the residence at the time of the homicide, was taken to Covenant Hospital in Plainview where she was examined and released.
Preliminary results released from the autopsy indicate the cause of death was blunt force trauma.
New information discovered at the scene has led investigators to extend their search. Investigators found evidence linked to a crime in Hico, Texas that took place approximately three years ago.
Police say they now have a suspect and are looking for a slender-built white male in his 20s to early 30s.
If you have information about this case, contact Swisher County Crime Stoppers at 806-995-4800. There is a $10, 500 reward for tips that lead to an arrest and conviction.
