For Immediate Release

Lone Star Fugitive Task Force

 
Stone Cold Killer Captured
Fugitive Facing Capital Murder & Sexual Assault Charges
 
Helotes, TX – David Malcom Strickland, 27, was arrested this Friday by members of the United States Marshals Service Lone Star Fugitive Task Force (LSFTF) in Helotes, TX. Arrest warrants were issued for Strickland pursuant to an investigation by the Portland Police Department (PPD) and Texas Rangers (TR) on charges involving Capital Murder, Aggravated Assault with a Weapon, and Aggravated Sexual Assault.

 This morning, the LSFTF was contacted by the TR for assistance in locating and apprehending Strickland. Through joint investigative efforts, task force officers and rangers determined that Strickland was hiding out at an apartment in the 12000 block of Bandera Road in Helotes. Task force officers and rangers conducted a brief surveillance and approached the apartment. Task force officers and rangers entered the apartment, identified themselves, and made contact with Strickland. Strickland was then taken into custody without incident.

 On June 23, 2012, Strickland was allegedly involved in sexually assaulting and shooting two women in the head. The heinous assault took place at a park located in Portland, TX. Both women were left for dead in a grassy area of the park, but were later found by a couple passing by. One of the victims had succumbed to the gunshot wound, but the other victim survived. After an extensive investigation conducted by the PPD and TR, today, warrants were issued for Strickland’s arrest.

 Strickland is currently being held in custody at the Helotes Police Department awaiting extradition to the San Patricio County Jail to face pending charges.

 Robert R. Almonte, United States Marshal for the Western District of Texas, states, “I am thrilled that the collaborative efforts of the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force, Texas Rangers, and Portland Police Department resulted in Strickland’s arrest. He’s a stone cold killer who thought he got away with murder, but will finally pay for his crime. My sympathies and condolences go to the victims and their families who had to endure this wicked act of violence.”
