    Just another shameful example of some of the "victims" of Hurricane Katrina. I guess these three ran through their $2000.00 debit cards and needed more money.

    -----

    (CNN) -- A Texas woman was allegedly robbed and killed by three hurricane evacuees she befriended after meeting them at her church, according to Pasadena, Texas, police.

    Betty Blair, 77, was strangled to death inside her Pasadena home Friday and her bound body was discovered by her daughter Friday evening, said Pasadena Police spokesman Vance Mitchell.

    Three suspects -- all described as hurricane evacuees -- were arrested Friday evening after police located the dead woman's missing car through its OnStar electronic tracking system, Mitchell said.

    The three had been hired by Blair to do odds jobs around her home, including cutting her grass, Mitchell said.

    "Unfortunately, it looks like her good will cost her her life," Mitchell said.

    Two of the suspects are teenagers who evacuated from Beaumont, Texas, in the wake of Hurricane Rita, Mitchell said. They were identified as Jimmy Hoang Le, 18, and Stephanie Jacobo, 18.

    The third suspect, 43-year-old Roosevelt Smith Jr., apparently was a Hurricane Katrina evacuee from New Orleans, Mitchell said.

    They met Blair when they sought help from St. Pius V Catholic Church in Pasadena, where she volunteered in the church's food pantry.

    When police realized Blair's 2000 Buick, which was missing, was equipped with OnStar, they quickly tracked it and it was stopped at a Beltway toll booth in the Dallas area, Mitchell said.

    The suspects were arrested without a confrontation, he said. Jacobo's 10-month-old son, who was also in the car, has been handed over to relatives, he said.

    Blair was described as a highly respected woman whose husband, a former Pasadena school board president, died several months ago.

    When you empty out a major city, all kinds of rats come out. Why are the two animals from Beaumont consider hurricane surviours? I have a brother and sister living in Lake Charles which was hit much worse than Beaumont and they have long since been back at work. You can't be nice in this day and age. There are some real animals out there.

    Too bloody true. Our society is in the toilet, and simple human kindness will become a casualty - simply as a matter of survival. Cheer up, folks - it's only going to get worse.

    Thanks to New Orleans for Roosevelt Smith Jr.... If he would have returned to N.O. he might have been electible to the mayor's seat or at the very least the city council. This scum is what New Orleans became thirty years ago and has become worse with each lousy mayor they bring in. These shit heads won't be returning to N.O. until the free ride is built for them by Mexican workers. Then they will return to demand what is their RIGHT to have. . . free housing, free food stamps and free money or else!

    Hey RCajun, call this shit back home where they belong, we don't want them. You emptied out the murder capital of America, take em back.

    Oh and by the way, the "hurricane survivors" of New Orleans are actually survivors of the incompetent, corrupt, ripoff jerks of New Orleans's levee board which caused the city to flood, the hurricane was gone when the real damage happened. To pretend it was the hurricane that caused the destruction of that place is a joke, it was a disaster waiting to happen.
    Any solid thunderstorm from the North could have done the same thing.

    Your hatred of New Orleans is well documented. Surely none of the people in Southeast Texas would act this way. I have responded to your irrational babbling for far to long. By the way have you heard that New Orleans will be rebuilt? I guess what you have to say really doesn’t mean very much. Go polish your little pistol. You will feel better afterwards. :laugh:

    You just responded. . .
    You can rebuild the buildings and the parks but that isn't what makes a place suck, it's the people that live there. That place is heavily populated with lowlife scum, murderers, ripoffs, alcoholics and serious drug addicts. Disease carrying Bourbon Street bar flies, nasty strippers, transvestites, disgusting flamboyant homosexuals, vodoo practisioners, and the worst tourists from around the world that choose a decadent place like that to go to.
    The smells are also something you won't be able to get rid of, you have the sewer line of America flowing downtown(the Mississippi), it stinks! Vegas looks like Disneyworld compared to Nawlins, I'll take Vegas.
