He’s Dead, Jim
Running a few days behind is pretty normal for our blog. Running a few decades behind is pretty unusual, however for the Great State of Texas. This time, justice delayed was not justice denied, as cop-killer Lester Bower’s day of reckoning arrived after his 1983 conviction for a quadruple murder involving an ultralight airplane.
From the Associated Press:
He was found guilty of killing contractor Bob Tate, former police officer Ronald Mayes, sheriff’s deputy Philip Good and interior designer Jerry Brown in a deal for a $4,000 ultra-light airplane that went bad.
Prosecutors said Bower killed Tate to steal the airplane Tate was selling and then killed the other three when they unexpectedly showed up at the hangar.
Investigators said they found parts from Tate’s airplane at Bower’s residence and that he had made calls to Tate. They said Bower, who also sold firearms, had acquired a gun and exotic ammunition similar to what was used in the killings.
Bower was pronounced dead at 6:36 p.m. CDT
