David Port
A man convicted of murdering a Houston postal carrier is about to be set free, The Houston Chroncile reports.
The 1984 abduction and shooting death of letter carrier Debora Sue Schatz sent shockwaves throughout the Bayou City.  Now 30 years later, her killer David Port is scheduled to be released because of an obscure law that was later abolished.
"Any violent offender convicted in the state of Texas between 1977 and 1987 is eligible for what's known as the Automatic Mandatory Release Law as long as you maintain good behavior behind bars," says Houston victims' rights advocate Andy Kahan.

Kahan says that means instead of serving 75 years, Port will be released Thursday.  He has been working with the Schatz family trying to at least tag Port as a sex offender, but still no word if that will happen.
"He will be under paper, under supervision until the year 2062," Kahan tells KTRH News.

Schatz' brother-in-law Phillip Harmon says then 17-year-old Port was upset with his parents about going to summer camp, so he took his anger out on Schatz, who was actually covering a route for a co-worker that day.

"She was very tough, strong country girl, and she was trying to get away from him and ran down the stairs," Harmon says.  "That's when he shot her in the head three times and dumped her body off of Highway 290."

Harmon says he can't understand why a good behavior law abolished after port's conviction would still allow him to get out prison.
"It’s just belligerent to let a murderer out," he says.  "I can understand petty thieves, but you're letting a murderer and murderers out on the streets of Houston."

How sick!!!!!!
