The face of a killer, not alleged killer, since he confessed to the TV news camera

I wrote about this matter a few days ago and it didn't take SAPD long to find and arrest a suspect in a purse snatching turned into a capital murder case.

Good job SAPD!  Outstanding!

BTW Lorenzo thank you for confessing to the Fox News affiliate that you did it.

By Valentino Lucio - Express-News

Authorities arrested a man Thursday evening in connection with a purse-snatching that led to the death of an airman on the city's West Side.

Lorenzo L. Thompson, 21, was arrested on a capital murder charge about 5 p.m. at an East Side gas station. Investigators with the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force and San Antonio Police Department arrested Thompson after they found him in an area of town he was known to frequent.

Thompson is accused of causing Vanessa Marie Pitts' death Monday after allegedly stealing her purse at an Exxon at U.S. 90 and West Military Drive, police said.
