Tom Brady has another ring to add to his championship collection soon, but for now, the jersey he wore during Super Bowl LI is missing in action. The New England Patriots quarterback told reporters his jersey went missing after the team’s overtime win (a first in NFL history) over the Atlanta Falcons in Houston.

After Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick announced the Texas Rangers (no, NOT the baseball team) would be helping the police find Brady’s jersey, the reaction was swift online. Some folks on Twitter questioned whether Patrick should be allowing the use of the state’s resources to recover the memento in the midst of other political issues.

 

A few people suggested the most famous — and fictional — Texas Ranger to assist with the case.

Others looked at the news a bit more humorously, including the states’s other Texas Rangers.

Decades-old New Hampshire homicide mystery has possible Texas ties

A man who may have spent time working in Texas and had acquaintances in Austin during the 1970s and 1980s is thought to be connected to a string of homicides in New Hampshire, authorities say.

Since 1985, New Hampshire law enforcement officials, working with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, have been trying to solve the mystery surrounding the deaths of a woman and three children, whose bodies were found wrapped in plastic and placed in steel barrels in the woods outside Allenstown, N.H.

The victims remain unidentified, but authorities hope to find some answers if they can get more information about a man they think is their killer.

According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, investigators say DNA has linked one of the victims found in the barrels to a man known as “Bob Evans,” who died in prison in 2010.

Authorities have said Evans “referenced the state of Texas on multiple occasions when speaking of places he spent time during the early 1980s. He told investigators he spent time in Travis, Nueces, Harris, Dallas and Matagorda counties

In Travis County, investigators say Evans might have known someone residing at an RV park in Austin during 1986. He called two RV parks – Austin Lone Star RV Resort and Pecan Grove RV Park, officials said.

Evans also claimed to have worked as an electrician with Brown and Root in Houston during the 1970s; as an installation mechanic at Big Three Industries during the 1970s and 1980s; and as an instrument repairman for Bay City Electric in Bay City during the 1970s.

The family of a missing woman, Denise Beaudin, believe she and Evans left New Hampshire and traveled to Texas to avoid financial difficulties.

More information about the case has been prepared by the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office, the Manchester Police Department and New Hampshire State Police, and can be obtained by emailing the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at media@ncmec.org.

 

Unlucky Friday the 13th? Austin DJ Miguel Angel plays show hours after getting stabbed

Austin DJ Miguel Angel, also known as “ulovei,” said he was the victim of a stabbing in East Austin on Friday night but he was still able to play a show just hours later.

Angel chronicled the night on social media, proving the old adage, the show must go on.

Austin police had responded to a stabbing around 9 p.m. Friday in the 800 block of East 14th Street, according a Statesman report. A person with a minor stab wound was taken to the hospital, and police had a suspect in custody after the stabbing, police said.

Angel said he was the victim in that report and has identified his attacker to police and plans to press charges. The Statesman reached out to Austin police, but they were unable to confirm details of the incident Saturday night.

Angel said the incident occurred at his East Austin apartment where he was waiting for a friend so they could go together to a show he was scheduled to play.

He said someone knocked on his door and, thinking it was his friend, he opened it to see a man in a mask with what looked like a samurai sword. “He just started swinging me and attacking,” he said.

Angel said he grabbed the blade with his hands to keep the man from stabbing and slashing him further, but then the attacker pulled out a dagger from behind and stabbed Angel in the back.

The DJ said when his friend, Kirkland Audain, got to his apartment the attacker began running after Audain.

Audain said he was able to get into his car, lock the door and call police. “It’s just surreal,” he said. “He was going to kill my friend if I hadn’t shown up.”

On Friday at 10:48 p.m., Angel posted video and photos of himself on social media at the hospital after he said he was stabbed.

Angel told the Statesman he suffered three stab wounds, including a large stab wound in the back, and multiple injuries to his hands, arms, face and neck. He said he suffered no internal damage from the incident.

 

The DJ also retweeted posts from his friends showing him being treated at University Medical Center Brackenridge.

 

Angel said doctors did not want him to leave the hospital and told him to rest, but he knew he wanted to make it to the show he was scheduled to play.

After getting treated, Angel said he left the hospital around 12:30 a.m. and was able to play the last part of the show.

Around 1:30 a.m., Angel posted a video showing him spinning at The Volestead bar on East 6th Street for a Friday the 13th show with DJ Luis Espada, also known as King Louie.

“I just didn’t want anybody to know that they can keep me down,” he said. “This guy wanted to hurt me (and) wanted to stop me, so I’m not going to let that happen.”

Angel said it was painful to spin at the show due to cuts and fresh wounds on his hands and fingers, but his friends were there to help carry bags and equipment.

Angel said seeing his friends at the gig and playing to the crowd was just what he needed after the traumatic incident.

“I didn’t just want to be at home crying in bed or something. That wouldn’t have helped me,” he said. “It feels good to know that so many people have my back here in Austin.”

Angel said he has received calls, social media messages and texts from friends, acquaintances and people he hasn’t spoken to in years wishing him well after the incident.

He said he planned to DJ two shows Saturday night despite pain in his hands from the recent injuries.
