Normal021MicrosoftInternetExplorer4January 5, 2012 – A Houston coin dealer had just finished setting up at the Money Show of The Southwest on December 1, 2011. The dealer left the show and took his family out to dinner. Upon returning home the dealer and his family were confronted by two masked gunmen who forced them inside their home. The dealer fought with one of the suspects and he was kicked, punched and pistol whipped to the head. During the scuffle one suspect bit the dealer’s arm. The victims were then tied up.
Normal021MicrosoftInternetExplorer4In an attempt to remove any DNA evidence the suspects sliced the skin around the bite mark and then poured alcohol on the wound. The suspects then placed the dealers 12 year old daughter on the floor and put a pillow over her face. The suspects demanded to know where all the valuables were as they put a gun to the daughters head.
