President's cardiologist murdered over '20-year-old grudge'

President's cardiologist murdered over '20-year-old grudge'

Chief Art Acevedo named Joseph James Pappas II as the suspect in the slaying of Dr. Mark Hausknecht.

Spencer said she immediately called her daughter to try to contact him and called the police.

This man is unsafe, this man is capable, this man has some skills.

"The Houston Police Department's identification of a suspect in the shooting death of Dr. Mark Hausknecht is more proof of the excellent results that come from HPD's top notch investigators working with information provided by the public, from prominent cases to those that escape widespread attention".

A doctor who treated former U.S. president George H W Bush may have been shot dead out of revenge, police have said.

However, on July 30 - the day one of her daughters was to meet with Pappas while visiting Houston - Pappas texted Spencer that he was committing suicide miles from homes.

Local officials say they do not know what may have prompted the killing so many years after Mr Pappas' mother's death.

"It appears a 20-year-old grudge and sadly someone died", Acevedo told reporters, according to CNN. "Concerned for the suspect's well fare, and knowing he had indicated that he was going to kill himself, officers with the Houston Police Department conducted a well fare check on his home at 9 p.m. [Tuesday]".

Trump touts economy: 'These numbers are very, very sustainable'
Housing remained a weak spot in the economy amid signs that the sector is poised for its broadest slowdown in years. It's also more than double the 2 percent annualized growth reported in 2018's first quarter.

Hausknecht's family released a statement Thursday thanking Houston police and others who helped identify a suspect, and asking the public to focus on Pappas' photo and contact police if they know where he is.

The gunman rode past the doctor before turning around to kill him, police say.

Police went to Pappas' three-bedroom home in Houston, Texas, on Tuesday night but he was not there.

Police previously released surveillance images of the shooting, which took place as Hausknecht rode a bicycle to work, and shared eyewitness testimony of the shooting.

Pappas had been in law enforcement from 1983 until he ended his service as a reserve officer in 2013, according to NBC News.

'Mark was a fantastic cardiologist and a good man.

Hausknecht's wife, Georgia Hsieh, said police told her that her husband was riding through a construction site when the gunman rode up in front of him and fired three shots while facing him.

Hausknecht, who had worked in Houston for about three decades, had once treated Bush for an irregular heartbeat. "I will always be grateful for his exceptional, compassionate care", the statement read.
