Capital Murder Suspect in Custody

It's rare that a murder like this one happens in this area of town, but residents should be glad to know police do have a suspect in custody. Police are still looking into exactly why the victim was murdered, but the motive appears to be robbery.

Just before 9 p.m. Monday night 25-year-old Alanzo Lewis was charged with capital murder for the homicide which happened at 8017 Vinton Avenue around 5:30 p.m. Monday. We know the suspect lives in North Lubbock, he was taken into custody at Rosa's Cafe where he apparently worked, which is just a few blocks away from the crime scene where the homicide occurred. Police found 73-year-old Don McCullough stabbed to death.

The victim's wife told police that her husband had just arrived home from running errands when the assault happened. McCullough worked for the Lubbock-Garza County job source. We've also learned McCullough is a retired US air force colonel. He reportedly flew in Vietnam. Neighbors also say McCullough and his wife were headed to San Antonio Tuesday for their son's retirement from the air force. Their son reportedly flew in Desert Storm.

As for the suspect, we're told that Lewis remains at the Lubbock Police Department.  He will be arraigned sometime Tuesday morning. We'll be there and bring you the latest.
